"I felt it" reports:
Pedi Bay Symi (555.8 km E from epicenter) [Map] / 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
Kalamaki Zakynthos / MMI III (Weak shaking): Felt around 00.30am local time
