TAIPEI / MMI V (Moderate shaking)
Sun Moon Lake / MMI IV (Light shaking): Was awakened by the shaking. Took me a few seconds to realise it was an earthquake as this was my first experience wih an earthquake. Heard the wooden furnitures and toilet fixtures shaking and felt the building shaking. Lasted for less than 20 seconds.
(Taiwan, Province of China) (158 km NW from epicenter)(no details): Being on the 12th floor and in a room with bunk beds, it felt like my bunkmate was shaking the bed on purpose until I noticed it happening with everyone in the room. Passed pretty quickly but enough the for all of us to be wide awake and to sit up and look at each other. (via EMSC)
