Data for same earthquake as reported from other agencies
San Francisco Lachigolo (366.2 km NNW from epicenter) / MMI III (Weak shaking): I was outside in the kitchen and the coke bottles on top of my fridge began to rattle. There was no one else in my kitchen and I was 3 feet away from my fridge.
Acapulco (Mexico) (72 km SW from epicenter)(no details): I was sleeping in bed, had woke up, rolled over then felt the bed sway for about 4-5 seconds then felt and heard a mild clunk/bang. The clunk mildly rattled a couple glasses in the cupboard. This was at approximately 1:35am., dark in the room so I was not able to observe what was occurring. (via EMSC)
