  • Vienna - Felt the bed shake around 4 am!
  • Vienna, Wien - I was still awake, the chair I was sitting in moved sideways in a N-S direction a few centimeters on its wheels five or six times, the entire house shook. I was positive that it was an earthquake, but as I was listening to music with headphones, I did not hear any rumbling noises. The entire duration was 20 to 30 seconds, I had no time to be really scared or react in a meaningful way. It was my 3rd earthquake experience overall: 1977.03.04, 2001.07.01, 2013.09.20. There were no aftershocks.
  • Baden bei Wien - Windows shook for a few seconds and bedroom door flew open at about 04:03 this morning.
  • Schwechat - 20.09.2013 Mi ha svegliato verso le 4 di notte uno strano rumore come di un tuono, il palazzo ( io abito al 4° piano) ha sussultato e la cristalleria e i lampadari si sono messi a suonare per qualche secondo.
  • Tsukuba - The shaking woke me up, door and lamps where making noise and car alarms went off in the streets.
  • Vienna, 14th district - I was awake during the entire time. I had thought it was an unusually large Strassenbahn (the tracks are right outside my window). I waited to hear the machine pass by, but it didn't. During the event I heard our drinking glasses rattling on the table. It ended at 4:07am. As others have said, I felt no after-shock.
  • Biedermannsdorf - It woke us up as the bed was moving. I put a foot out of bed on the floor and realized the floor and house were vibrating. Before I got my other foot on the floor though it was over.
  • Wenen - Alles begon een beetje te schudden en te rammelen rond 04.00 vannacht. Geen schade voor de rest.
  • Vienna - Awoken to bed shaking
  • Vienna - Woke me up - didn't realise it was an earthquake, just heard the floor creaking
