(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.
