Pahrump (276.7 km SE of epicenter) [Map] / Light shaking (MMI IV) : thought someone was in the house pushing my chair then I remembered seeing the cats freaking out. When they go nuts for no reason a quake is usually to follow. Flower baskets were moving also. (reported through our app)
Vancouver wa (914.2 km NNW of epicenter) [Map] / not felt : Idk why it thinks I can feel this quake over 500 miles away (reported through our app)
52.3 km SSE of epicenter [Map] / Very weak shaking (MMI II) (reported through our app)
Henderson nv. (348 km SE of epicenter) [Map] / Light shaking (MMI IV) (reported through our app)
NORTH LAS VEGAS (369.6 km SE of epicenter) [Map] / Weak shaking (MMI III)
Portland, OR / Very weak shaking (MMI II) : I was sleeping on the memory foam mattress on the floor of my bedroom, which is on the second floor of my house. I felt the shaking/vibration for a couple of minutes. I think it's around 3am PDT. And I'm in Portland, OR. So it's about 700 miles away. Is it possible to feel an M5.1 earthquake at that distance? Or totally unrelated?
South west las vegas / not felt : experience no shake
95037 / Weak shaking (MMI III)
Hawthorne, Nevada / Moderate shaking (MMI V)
Jamestown California / Light shaking (MMI IV) : Woke me up
Fallon (United States, 161 km NW of epicenter) : Felt myself and the water bottle on the table vibrate (reported through EMSC)
