"I felt it" reports:
(Indonesia) (1920 km E from epicenter)(no details): I felt the swaying for around a minute and immediately suspected an earthquake. Coathangers swayed and knocked in the cupboard. It was really surprising to look out of the window and know that my building was obviously moving against the cityscape but that life of the city in the streets below, people and cars, seemed to continue without any perceptible reaction. The rest of my family were at lower floors and they and other people in the hotel did not notice. I checked on the internet and soon saw the updates of the quake (via EMSC)
