"I felt it" reports:
(289.1 km S from epicenter) [Map] / MMI III (Weak shaking): I was laying in my bed in my room watching cricket and suddenly I felt the room shake, for a second I thought it was the kids running about on the top floor. But then I had a look around in the house and I notice new set of cracks in the wall plaster. Then I was certain it was an earthquake. Straight after I checked this site and 5min later it came up on the map as an earthquake near by. (via app)
Kabul (Afghanistan) (286 km SW from epicenter)(no details): exactly feel (via EMSC)
