  • Antalya - Het is niet de eerste keer hier. Heb dit al geregeld meegemaakt,in mijn vakantie verblijf. Maar deze keer bewegende de blokken iets meer en in huis de lusters en meubels ook. Was raar gevoel. Is dit een voor bode van zwaarder verschuivingen van de aardplaten hier in de omgeving misschien. Ik weet dat we hier op een plaats zitten waar ooit aardbevingen waren,klopt het niet. Groeten ,louis en roos
  • Antalya - Ca. 30 seconden, ligt schudden van het hotel. Lampen en kleren hangers in de kasten gingen heen en weer. Op bgg nauwelijks opgemerkt op 6-10 verdieping goed voelbaar. Enkele mensen naar de galerij om ge zien wat er aan de hand was.
  • Alanya - No dammage was made.
  • Kadriye - Minimale trilling grond. Lamp en water in fles bewogen wat heen en weer

  • Lara, Antalya - Wij bevonden ons op de 6de verdieping van het hotel. Ikzelf stond stil aan hoofdeinde van bed en dacht eerst dat het bed bewoog. Pas na een paar sec. begreep ik dat dit een lichte aardbeving moest zijn want het bed bewoog niet, wel het gebouw. Mijn kinderen die op het bed zaten dachten ook dat het bed bewoog. Mijn man liep rond in de kamer en voelde het niet. Aska Lara resort & Spa

  • Isparta - Muren, ramen, deuren bewogen. Veel lawaai. Het bed schudde en het leek alsof de vloer golfde. We bevonden ons op 1ste verdiep rende naar buiten. Veel mensen in paniek. Kaders hingen nadien scheef, kleine voorwerpen lagen op de grond. Een aantal mensen sliepen daarna buiten. We hoorden nadien sirenes, maar schade was er weinig. stresserende ervaring.
  • Isparta - moest de eerdere aardbeving er niet geweest zijn zou ik mij niet bewust geweest zijn van dit beven. Bed schudde lichtjes.
  • Isparta - Naschok, we werden wakker van lawaai en licht schudden van het bed, ook dochter die op 1km van ons verbleef voelde het. Leek zware vrachtwagen die voorbij reed.
  • Isparta - We werden wakker van schudden van het bed en rommelend lawaai van ramen en meubels. Naschok, het was spannend na de eerste schok. Moet je iets ondernemen of blijven liggen?
