"I felt it" reports:
Volcan Santa Ana El Salvador / MMI IV (Light shaking): I was on the rim of Santa Ana Crater taking IR thermic of the Laguna. I felt the earthquake as I was on the bottom on a large rock with the camera...quite escared because at the very border of the rim! The other volcanologists that were taking other types of measurements did not feel it!
