Pedi Bay Symi (555.8 km E from epicenter) / not felt: At that time I noticed a strong wave in a very glass calm bay that moved the boats . Then after a few minutes I went down for a swim and found the water unusually brown and murky and you could not see the sea bed which you usually can. There was no sign of any cleaning/ building or boateork being done locally and then I reallsed there may have been a sudden tremor on the sea bed that had caused the mud to drift up up to surface when it was shaken. Eventually it all calmed down again and settled
