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)
