"I felt it" reports:
Mexico City, Polanco (464.6 km NW from epicenter) [Map] / MMI IV (Light shaking)
Huatulco, Mexico / MMI IV (Light shaking): At 5:00am, I was woken up because the bed and doors were shaking like in a blender. At first, I didnt understand what is going on as if it was a dream, but then I realized it was an earthquake. I was on a 3rd floor of a hotel and the bed shook quite a bit - enough to wake you up (and I am not a light sleeper)! Never had this experience before. No other trembling followed after.
