"I felt it" reports:
Celaya, Guanajuato (970.9 km NW from epicenter) [Map] / MMI IV (Light shaking): It woke me up around 6:32 AM (but my watch is fast so probably earlier is the actual time). It was a rumbling feeling I felt, deep inside. I looked up and saw the shadows of things shaking/swaying on the ceiling and wall. I use a bipap machine at night for sleep apnea and the tubing that goes from the machine to my face mask was swaying around like crazy, making dramatic shadows on the ceiling, while I laid perfectly still in the bed. A few pictures on the wall are crooked this morning.
(336.4 km N from epicenter) [Map] / MMI II (Very weak shaking) (via app)
