"I felt it" reports:
Guasave (Mexico) (101 km NE from epicenter)(no details): We were a bit concerned about the possibility of a tsunami. A neighbor ran down to the beach and said the water had pulled back about 50 meters. I checked the tsunami site, which said that there wasn't a danger of a devastating tsunami. However, when you live at sea level and only a couple of blocks from the ocean, any tsunami could be devastating. (via EMSC)
Earthquakes in same area up to 1 year afterwards (likely aftershocks)
