Carmen, bohol (41.7 km SW of epicenter) [Map] / Weak shaking (MMI III) / rattling, vibrating / 2-5 s : I was on the balcony. I felt a double shake, in 1 second, which made the windows, the metal ceiling and the balcony slab vibrate, all in less than 5 seconds. And outside, metal sliding gate shake too. Impressive.
