Nueva Gorgona / MMI IV (Light shaking): I was reading when it felt like something heavy hit the building, my furniture rocked. It continued to rock. Nothing fell. I checked the time-26 minutes after the hour-so it took about 2 minutes to reach about 300 km away from epicenter. It seemed to continue for awhile, but was rocking for less than a minute as I monitored the time on my cell phone. My thought-this must be an earthquake.
Bejuco, Costa Rica / MMI V (Moderate shaking)
/ not felt: I’ve been surfing online more than three hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. Personally, if all website owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the internet will be a lot more useful than ever before. I visited various websites however the audio feature for audio songs existing at this website is actually excellent. It's the best time to make some plans for the future and it is time to be happy. I've read this post and
San Emigdio (El Salvador) (873 km NW from epicenter)(no details): Hotel building was swaying for roughly 10 seconds (via EMSC)
Puerto Armuelles (Panama) (38 km S from epicenter)(no details): It was very strong. Threw all appliances, TVs and people sitting down to the floor. Nearby grocery store had shelves fall on customers breaking legs etc. Many homes destroyed or rendered unsafe. Large trees swayed 5-6 feet; some fell; and the road undulated in front of our eyes. Large cracks in the sand at the Beach followed by huge waves.....and it was low tide! I have attached a video. Many lost all dishes, glasses and appliances. I will attach photos. (via EMSC)
Ciudad de Panamá (Panama) (371 km E from epicenter)(no details): En Panamá, Costa del Este se sintió el movimiento como una ola. (via EMSC)
