Jinotepe, Carazo, Nicaragua / MMI IV (Light shaking): Woke up, noted the time and went back to sleep.
Managua (Nicaragua) (10 km SE from epicenter)(no details): This was right under our feet. It is worse at night. Somehow this feels like it isn't over. Is this leading up to the next eruption of a volcano?
Las Salinas, Nicaragua / MMI III (Weak shaking)
Carretera sur / MMI VI (Strong shaking)
León (Nicaragua) (72 km W from epicenter)(no details): A short vibration followed by a sharp jerking shock, then a bit of a rolling motion, more rattling, lasted maybe 10 seconds. (via EMSC)

Managua (Nicaragua) (18 km S from epicenter)(no details): Although it was smaller than the other ones we had in the last few days, this one felt right underneath us. It was long and we heard a sound. Very strange experience, never felt one so close. (via EMSC)
Mateare (Nicaragua) (35 km S from epicenter)(no details): This questionnaire is asking about the 6.1 quake BUT my answers are for the 5.1 that proceeded the 6.1. The neighborhood was all outside when the 6.1 hit and it was strong but different than the 5.1 which had an up and down motion. My 1 ton truck was bouncing 6 to 8 inches. A concrete table was tipped over. Many shelves emptied. (via EMSC)
