Dhaka (Bangladesh) (743 km SE from epicenter)(no details): At first I didn't notice anything. I was walking out of the bathroom as it was happening, but wasn't aware. Then my younger brother, who always seems to get scared from such events, started panicking and calling me. I was then informed, by him and my mother, that an earthquake was occurring. I told my brother, who was eager to head out of the building, to remain calm as I stood by the window. To determine whether it was true or not. Then I felt the slight swaying motion beneath me and confirmed that there was indeed an earthquake. I was checking to see if any neighbors knew about it and if anyone was evacuating the buildings. No one really was, but as I felt a more intense sway a second time, I picked up my youngest brother, who was asleep, and headed down the stairs. As I opened the door, the neighbors started coming out as well. (via EMSC)
