Antigua, Guatemala (90.7 km N from epicenter) / MMI II (Very weak shaking): Felt very little. Was not sure if it was a weak quake until I looked at wine in my glass and saw the surface vibration of the liquid. Very slight movement of hanging light fixtures and no other seen evidence. Family did not mention they felt anything and was surprised to learn of these probable aftershocks of the large quake earlier the same day.
