Daniel Flores, San Isidro del General / MMI II (Very weak shaking): It felt like an explosion not an earthquake. There was a very loud sound and one violent blow but no real shaking after. We thought a truck had hit our house, or a propane gas cylinder had exploded near by. None of the neighbors thought it was an earthquake either. Felt like a meteorite hitting the earth or like dynamite set off very close by.
