San Pablo (Simangan) Ormoc City (41.7 km SSE of epicenter) [Map] / Weak shaking (MMI III) : In upstairs apartment. Was sitting in a chair at the time, Floor and chair started vibrating more than a big industrial truck causes. Water in cooler was splasing side to side. Dishes rattled some. Lasted maybe 5 seconds.
