Witnesses recount:

Terrible… Extremely horrible

The swaying was significant, I stood up and tried to get to a doorway and stumbled a little bit. It lasted nearly 5 minutes with the first 2 minutes being the strongest.

Moments after the quake strikes Erbil people are rushing into the streets…

Everyone is standing outside in Kuwait…
