Chatan (Japan) (136 km S from epicenter)(no details): The earthquake was around 15 ~ 30 seconds long, pausing half-way for 2 seconds and continuing with increasing intensity. It was around 5:11 am when it hit. At first it felt like one of our normal M3.0-.5s, but after the two second pause, I noticed it was one of the strongest I've ever felt on island. There was an aftershock at around 11:23 am, and a possible aftershock at around 5:30 pm. (via EMSC)
Chatan (Japan) (136 km S from epicenter)(no details): I am a heavy sleeper so me waking up is enough being said. The bed shook continuously for about 10 seconds. I could hear rumbling and windows shaking. My 2 yr old son woke up but my 15 month old boy didn't make a peep. (via EMSC)
Okinawa (Japan) (136 km S from epicenter)(no details): It occurred in two waves - the first lasted approximately 5 seconds followed a couple of seconds later by a larger shake of five to ten seconds. (via EMSC)

Chatan (Japan) (136 km S from epicenter)(no details): As I was waking up there was a rumbling and the bed shook for a few seconds. Almost as soon as it stopped a louder rumbling started. The windows and bed shook stronger than the first. It was strong enough that I jumped out of bed and stood in the doorway. (via EMSC)
