  • Sofia Bulgaria - It was indeed a strong quake and a scary experience, the strongest I've experienced in my lifetime.
  • Sofia, Bulgaria - About 10min before the earthquake began I heard the sound of air coming out, then a rhythmic sound as if some small ball kept bouncing on the ground outside for about 10min, then it started with a very loud sound and really strong shaking for over a minute.. the house seemed elastic.
  • Sofia, Lozenec - I've been woken up by strong shaking waves which lasted at least 15 to 20 sek. First I thought I was dreaming but soon I realised it is a strong earth quake.
