The residents of Turkey reports that "Woke up to bed shaking. Continued for 6 seconds or so. I felt it,  I was lying in my bed in an apartment in Cihangir (450 meters from Taksim Square) when I felt a forceful swaying side to side. As I’m new in the building I wondered for a second if it could be what happens when someone has slammed a door in the building but it was too strong and a few seconds too much to be that. Also, I lived in Tokyo and experienced many earthquakes."
