Athens (Greece, 301 km N of epicenter) : I was feelinng really sick a few moments right before this earthquake. And, I was almost waiting for thios to happen because I managed to stay awake and watch the seismograph plot for 2 min. Then,I saw it written down on sheet of the VLY seismic station. And just because i saw the graphs of other stations, I'm quite sure was it of a magnitude 4.2 R minimum . (reported through EMSC)
