(2942 km E from epicenter) [Map] / MMI III (Weak shaking): after lunch in the hotel on my way back to the elevator I felt like the floor was melting away. Did not feel dizzy at all, but somehow my feet and legs felt there was something completely wrong. Later I heard from another woman she felt the same at the same time.
