"I felt it" reports:
vilcabamba, Loja / MMI IV (Light shaking)
Cuenca / MMI V (Moderate shaking): We're in the twelfth floor of a high rise on Ordoñez Lasso. At about 9:14pm the earthquake woke my wife up. I was watching TV. There was some shaking that lasted for a few seconds, maybe 15, then a couple of sharp shakes that made the whole building sway, then a period of diminished shaking, with little increases until it finally subsided after about 2 minutes.
