Larissa / Strong shaking (MMI VI) / horizontal (sideways) swinging : There was a weird rumbling noise just before everything starting shaking. The first one was pretty intense and then it stopped for about 2mins and the second one hit which was just as bad. Entire neighbourhood still outside our homes... | One user found this interesting.
