Chengdu, Sofitel Taihe, 17th floor / MMI V (Moderate shaking): I was sitting in an office chair, doing some work, suddenly I noticed a weird feeling, shortly after that I heard a rattling noise coming from door fittings and loose objects in the room. I realised, that the floor felt unsteady and shortly after that the chair moved about 10cm back and forth a few times. As I stood up I was slightly disoriented and felt a bit dizzy, I could clearly recognise the floor was moving, then it was all over. Took about 5 to 10 seconds. I was in the Sofitel Taihe in Ch
