  • Genoa City, WI - I heard it more than felt it. It was a strange 'rolling thunder" type noise but felt like a grain truck drove by. Lasted for 1-2 seconds.
  • New Delhi - i felt light shaking of my building
  • delhi - no damage
  • Chengdu - At 8:30 tonight felt a very weak shaking. As we had experienced the 2008 earthquake we thought it must be an earthquake somewhere, so we checked online if there had been one in the area. Just read that because it was very deep it could have been felt in a wide area.
