Chongqing (China) (361 km E from epicenter)(no details): I had felt an earthquake before twice this year in the Kingdom of Tonga the first time in my life (US Citizen working abroad now in China) but this was very different. The bed swayed at least 7 or 8 times, no sound of rumbling like I heard in the South Pacific like a train coming through. This one was silent. Very spooky...I thought I was dreaming at first and then I said, Oh no, not again... (via EMSC)
