Antigua, Guatemala / MMI III (Weak shaking): Slight vibration while sitting in a chair. Duration:less than a minute.
El Rodeo Escuintla / MMI IV (Light shaking): Slight vibration, windows and doors rattled.
San Miguel Dueñas, Sacatepéquez, Guatemala / MMI III (Weak shaking): Felt weak shaking sitting in my house. Went outside to view Volcán Fuego to see if maybe the shaking was due to an eruption. Saw a small to medium ash cloud rising from the volcano. I assumed the shaking was due to that.
