"I felt it" reports:
El Paso (230.1 km W from epicenter) [Map] / MMI II (Very weak shaking)
(246 km W from epicenter) [Map] / MMI V (Moderate shaking): Bed shook and woke me up... after staying up late studying, I was sleeping in.
El Paso Texas (223.9 km W from epicenter) [Map] / MMI IV (Light shaking): I was sitting on my bed when I felt a shake and my kids and wife got out of bed wondering what the shake was.
Las Cruces (259.6 km W from epicenter) [Map] / MMI IV (Light shaking): I was sitting down when it was felt. I would liken the movement to the feeling of being on a bus and you are going over a bumpy road. The Christmas lights inside were swaying.
