(403.7 km SSE from epicenter) / MMI II (Very weak shaking): We were at Las Palmas Resort in Huatulco, Mexico. We were all sitting outside. It was a very quick bang and vibration, as if something hit the floor with force. Then it was over. I never experienced an earthquake before so I asked staff if that is what is was. They said yes. No damage.

Antigua, Guatemala (90.7 km N from epicenter) / MMI II (Very weak shaking): Felt very little. Was not sure if it was a weak quake until I looked at wine in my glass and saw the surface vibration of the liquid. Very slight movement of hanging light fixtures and no other seen evidence. Family did not mention they felt anything and was surprised to learn of these probable aftershocks of the large quake earlier the same day.

Antigua, Guatemala (98.2 km NNE from epicenter) / MMI III (Weak shaking): So weak, most of family did not feel it. Assumed it was an aftershock of this morning's quake. Dog did not want to go outside just before this small quake and is not leaving my side. Hopefully he is not prophetic.
