Cuenca (Ecuador) (38 km N from epicenter)(no details): It was moderate, but short in duration. The whole thing lasted no more than 5 seconds --- compared to some earthquakes I've experienced in Ecuador that last on the order of a minute. I'm only 40 km from the epicenter, which why I felt an earthquake of this low magnitude in the first place. (via EMSC)
