Synopsis : At dawn on April 25, Malaysians living on the west coast of the peninsula woke up to phone notifications alerting them about an earthquake.

The tremor originated around 600km away in Sumatera, Indonesia, prompting them to take to social media to share their rare “shaky” experiences with other Malaysians.

Despite the immense distance from the epicenter, the Institution of Engineering Malaysia (IEM) said the incoming wave frequency might have caused some tall buildings located on softer grounds in the region to wobble as well.
