"I felt it" reports:
Los Gatos beach, Zihuatanejo / MMI III (Weak shaking)
Playa La Ropa, ZIhuatanejo / MMI III (Weak shaking): I was working inside my condo and thought - oh my cement and rebar can be shaken! The entire condo building had a shake. Just as soon as it started, it was over. Totally cool. My husband was outside and my neighbor in the pool. Both did not feel the quake.
Playa Linda, Ixtapa, MX / MMI IV (Light shaking): Eating lunch and felt the table and chair shake on the beach. Looked to verify the chair was not touching the table, thinking something made it shake.
