  • Leipzig - Die Fenster haben gewackelt und es dröhnte.
  • Schkeuditz - Da wir beim Flughafen sitzen, dachten wir ein Flugzeug wäre zu tief geflogen. Erst war nur leicht und dauerte vielleicht 3 Sekunden. Klang wie bei einem Flugzeugstart.
  • Leipzig - Strong short quake
  • Leipzig - Man spürte eine leichte Erschütterung von wenigen Sekunden. Da wir mit Prüfmaschinen arbeiten, dachte ich es liegt daran. Aber die waren alle aus.
  • Leipzig - 8.38 Uhr, ein Schütteln, als würde eine Waschmaschine schleudern, wenige Sekunden

  • 64343 - sehr stark ,
  • Darmstadt - Abnormal and asynchronous movement(shaking) of furniture and objects(table, computer, fluids in containers), also bodily sensations.

  • Bensheim-Auerbach - Für ein zwei Sekunden grollte die Erde und alles vibrierte deutlich spürbar
  • Pfungstadt - es war aber ca. 18:25 Uhr , ich saß auf dem Sofa und das schaukelte mich ...ne gefühlte Minute vor und zurück! Bin sehr erschrocken und das jetzt noch! Glaube nicht das etwas beschädigt wurde.
  • Pfungstadt - 18:25 ...Sofa hat unter mir geschaukelt. Bin etwas geschockt!

  • Seeheim-Jugenheim - Quake Description: While sitting at the table with 3 people; all of a sudden the windows started to tremble, the ones to the east at first, it seemed to come from that direction. The table vibrated together with the whole house. A noise was heard, the same as before: like a massive truck filled with sand drove on a cobblestone street underneath. Unlike the last one this was a big ‘wave’ at once; without much before or after. More at http://blog.nerdette.org/?p=3843
