Spartia, Kefalonia / Light shaking (MMI IV) / rattling, vibrating / 1-2 s : I was on holiday in a villa in Spartia, Kefalonia. I was in the bathroom and felt the building shake as well as hearing the shower cubicle creak and rattle. It was a weak but noticeable sound that lasted for no more than a second or two.
