It is three hours after the people of Dubai reported feeling of earthquake tremor. Still no any data from seismological center available of any earthquake in Dubai till now! The only earthquake recorded at that time (around 07:30 PM) which people of Dubai are reporting was that one in Turkey-Syria-Iraq border region. The magnitude was just 3.2 and hard to experinece jolt and glasses rattled as reported by Sunil (below).

This is what Sunil Nair from Ajman, Free Zone reports through felt report form:
"Ya i felt it 2 times, the glass wall was about to collapse, it lasted for about 2 seconds, the people from nearby shops also felt it, as after which every one was talking about the same experience"

Update
EMSC mentions M 3.8 earthquake in Southern Iran. The epicenter of earthquake is 395 km NE Dubai. Is that the people of Dubai are reporting of this tremor!

The monitors will measure "the peak ground acceleration" when earthquakes occur in Dubai, the other emirates and the wider Gulf region.

Felt reports
Jane from umm suqeim 1: I live in umm suqeim 1. My patio doors shook violently for a couple of seconds. This happened three times around 7.30 very scary!
Amanda Ellis from Umm Sequim: We heard two small shakes which made our very high glass doors wobble. The dog was very confused. Then we were all sitting in the kitchen and there was a large noise and the glass doors wobbled long enough for us all to look scared!
