Panguitch at 100 East and 137 South / Moderate shaking (MMI V) : Upstairs in 100 year old home shook a lot felt by everyone. I was on the front porch and knew it was an earthquake to yell to everyone that is was a quake and to get outside which no one did; they thought it was a loud firework signaling the start of the 4th of July town parade.  
Panguitch (United States, 3 km NW of epicenter) : I saw the slideout on my neighbor's motorhome bouncing, and heard them talking loudly. I thought maybe they were jumping around in there or fighting, but then everyone came out, exclaiming about the earthquake. (reported through EMSC)
