It was a very strong shake, reminiscent of the kind of shaking we get in Greece which is where I am from originally. I live 15 years in the UK and the “Earthquake feeling” came rushing back. Nobody noticed in the cafe I was. I was sitting on a bench which shook visibly and so did my table. I shifted quickly but it stopped before I could do anything. I looked around to see if anyone else noticed but they were all engaged in other things. The thing is, I may have felt a smaller earthquake-like shake just before the strong one but I cannot be sure. I remember the feeling and checking around to see if anyone else noticed or if it was a bus hitting a pothole just outside the cafe. A few minutes later the big shake came.
