"I felt it" reports:
Santa Tecla (El Salvador) (224 km E from epicenter)(no details): Second one of the day. Blimey. (via EMSC)
San Marcos (Guatemala) (143 km NW from epicenter)(no details): This morning we were awoken by a slightly weaker one at 6am Guatemala time & this one about 25 mins. ago I felt while standing on an upper outside deck by a railing. Does the full moon affect earthquakes? This site shows that this particular area of Guatemala have experienced an aftershock every few hours since the 6am this morning? Not worried though. :-) (via EMSC)
Guatemala City (Guatemala) (130 km NE from epicenter)(no details): It was pretty long. around 1 minute (via EMSC)
Guatemala (Guatemala) (127 km NE from epicenter)(no details): very strong and long (via EMSC)
San Salvador (El Salvador) (225 km E from epicenter)(no details): It was not strong, but it lasted a long time. (via EMSC)
Quetzaltenango (Guatemala) (143 km NW from epicenter)(no details): At first I thought wind was shaking the hostel in which we were staying, but bed is on a concrete floor & chandelier swung (via EMSC)
Guatemala City (Guatemala) (140 km NE from epicenter)(no details): It was a fairly long earthquake compared to the other two today. I'd say it lasted 45 seconds. (via EMSC)
Guatemala City (Guatemala) (140 km NE from epicenter)(no details): Seemed not to last as long as the earthquake this morning at 0611 but was felt stronger. (via EMSC)
Earthquakes in same area up to 1 year afterwards (likely aftershocks)

Boisbert, Lamentin, Guadeloupe (3334.9 km NNW from epicenter) / MMI III (Weak shaking): It was my 1st time, at 3:50pm (local timezone). My chair started to swing during not more than 10 seconds and then a bigger "wave" moved my chair a bit.
