Uria / Light shaking (MMI IV) / single vertical bump : I heard a big bang. My wife said there is an earthquake get out of the building. I ran out of the building. As I was running out of the building I realized that I forgot my Bella the Coton de Tulear my service dog. I then ran back into the building to get my Bella the Coton de Tulear. I have never been in an earthquake since I live in the United States. To me it was strange.  
Izmir is / Very weak shaking (MMI II) / rattling, vibrating : I heard a loud noise. The buildings began to shake. It was very unusual since I was from the United States and I was never in an earthquake. It was very scary. I ran out of the building. Them I realize that I didn’t have my service dog Bella the Coton de Tulear. Then I ran back into the building to get my Bella the Coton de Tulear and ran back out.
