"I felt it" reports:
Dalvik (Iceland) (41 km SE from epicenter)(no details): Just tonight alone we have felt at least 3 dozen quakes, some of which achived 4-5 on Richter. Even though they felt uncomfortable, I never felt we were in an Danger. The roaring sound few seconds before the quakes alerted us and it was more like wait for it to hit us. Some seemed longer than others. (via EMSC)
