La Manzanilla del Mar, Jalisco, Mexico (109 km NNE of epicenter) [Map] / Light shaking (MMI IV) : My husband and I both woke, just before 6AMCDT, to a light shaking of the bed, rattle of sliding glass door and vibration of floor lamp on floor. We were on the second floor of our newly constructed home, located on a hill overlooking the Bahia de Tenacatita in La Manzanilla del Mar, Jalisco. 16 km from San Patricio.
