dushanbe / Light shaking (MMI IV) : my first earthquake!  
Dushanbe (Tajikistan, 26 km NW of epicenter) : It was so bad earthquake, I was in second floor playing game that it hit I scared so much everyone got outside. (reported through EMSC)  
Dushanbe (Tajikistan, 28 km W of epicenter) : Мы лежали, смотрели телевизор как вдруг плавно начало качать диван. Я посмотрел на люстру она сильно качалась. Я понял что землетресение. Мы все его дружно боимся и началась паника. Потом минут через 20 мы успокоились и снова сидим смотрит ТВ. Хорошо, что все обошлось и мы живы. (reported through EMSC)
