Chamonix, Haut Savoie / MMI IV (Light shaking): We felt our building vibrate and crockery/glasses rattled. As if a heavy vehicle hit our small block of flats.
Chamonix center (14.1 km WNW from epicenter) [Map] / MMI IV (Light shaking): This first earthquake was 15.21 (french time) The second (15.31) felt like an earthquake, with ‘two’ shakes one after the other; the first ten minutes earlier (this one) felt more like one ‘boom’ like we had been hit by an avalanche really
Chamonix / MMI IV (Light shaking): Loud rumbling and building shook
Saint-Gervais-les-Bains (France) (25 km W from epicenter)(no details): Like a prolonged big lorry passing in front of the house ... except it wasn’t because it vibrated for longer and right through the house. (via EMSC)
