"I felt it" reports:
tarxien malta / MMI II (Very weak shaking)
tarxien malta / MMI VI (Strong shaking)
HONIARA / MMI III (Weak shaking): I was just settling off to sleep when the bed started gently shaking. I'm used to quakes as I live in New Zealand but due to the torrential rain over the last while here I did wonder if the hillside was going to give way. Pleased I found your site! Ann V.
