"I felt it" reports:
(30.6 km NNE from epicenter) [Map] / MMI II (Very weak shaking)
Salmas (Iran) (34 km SW from epicenter)(no details): I didn't feel the earthquake myself but had my budgerigars panic all of a sudden while I was working in desk listening to (perhaps) Flo Rida's "Round Round"! I suspected that something must have startled them and the thought of a quake momentarily passed through my mind! However, I didn't exactly come to realize it up until I was informed of an earthquake having happened. (via EMSC)
Khoy (Iran) (11 km NW from epicenter)(no details): I felt it. But i thought it is not an earthquake until i understand from news then i remembered the feeling just an hour before, so it was realy an earthquake! (via EMSC)
Earthquakes in same area up to 1 year afterwards (likely aftershocks)
