Aci Trezza, Catania, Sicily (0 km NNE of epicenter) [Map] / Very weak shaking (MMI II) / horizontal (sideways) swinging / 5-10 s : I was standing on a big rock on the seashore, first I thought that the water is moving the rock but then I realized that it cannot move it because it's 8 meters high. :) I felt shaking for a few seconds only.
