It was not very hard or violent, but it was slightly noticeable. I didn't even think it could have been an earthquake until a few of my friends (who also live in Rome) starting talking about an earthquake in Italy not very long after. I had my headphones in, but I do not think any of my other furniture or belongings shook/moved.

Few seconds of shaking who caused the windows rattling and suddenly the floor started jolting stronger. So, we ran out of the house while my dog was barking like a crazy.

    Useful information to read this daily earthquake list
    This earthquake list covers important earthquakes in the world. If a more detailed page is present, the earthquake line will be linked to the detailed page. The multi-source approach has been setup to compare values as seismology is not an exact science and needs a lot of calculations. The reference for the time zone is UTC (Coordinated Universal Time, also called GMT). Color explanation if we add some details above the list : green color = NOT dangerous for damage or injuries, orange color = MODERATE risk for damage or injuries, red color = CONSIDERABLE risk for damage or injuries

    I have felt it Ik heb het gevoeld – Το έκανα αισθάνεται – Yo lo he sentido – 我的确感到了 – 私はそれを感じていました- Ich habe es gefühlt – Bunu hissediyorum yaptı – لم أشعر أنه
