    USGS has upgraded the quake to 8.3M.

    AP quoting RIA Novosti and others reported:

    “Russian news agencies reported that residents of Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky on the Kamchatka peninsula in the Okhotsk Sea felt the tremors for about five minutes. Residents ran out of the buildings. School children were evacuated.

    “Tremors were felt in Moscow, prompting some people to evacuate from buildings across the city.

    “Tremors are extremely rare in Moscow, the last recorded instance was in the 1977. The Russian Meteorological Service confirmed these reports but said they did not have immediate information about the magnitude of the tremors of Moscow.

    “Russian news agencies also cited eyewitnesses reporting strong tremors across Siberia.”

    “The aftershocks occurred in Nizhny Novgorod, Moscow, in Europe – for instance, in Romania. Almost the entire continent was shaken,” Interfax news agency quoted the head of the Situation Center for Agency of Hydrometeorological and Environmental monitoring as saying.
