Data for same earthquake as reported from other agencies
(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.
Santa Lucia Milpas Altas, Sacatepequez, Guatemala (127.1 km SE from epicenter) / MMI V (Moderate shaking): Not as bad as the first one. I was already awake from the first one, so this one didn't scare me.
Nuevo Cuscatlan (El Salvador) (303 km SE from epicenter)(no details): Very mild but woke me up. It was very long (via EMSC)
