"I felt it" reports:
On couch in Regina NM (16.2 km W of epicenter) [Map] / MMI V (Moderate shaking): Watching tv at 9am- few minutes later I heard a loud noise - rumble?-and felt the entire house shake deeply - not lightly- thought it was a big rig but no traffic on hwy 96. I then thought it was one of the giant airplanes that frequently fly over my house but no planes. I thought- maybe that was an earthquake? I felt the house move deeply- the only way I can explain it!
(0.6 km SSW of epicenter) [Map] / MMI III (Weak shaking): Felt couch shaking with two people sitting on. Very brief
(31.1 km SW of epicenter) [Map] / MMI IV (Light shaking)
Santa Fe / MMI III (Weak shaking): Had just opened refrigerator door and all the bottles in the door started clanking together--thought something was wrong with the refrigerator.
Regina NM / MMI IV (Light shaking): It sounded like something slammed into the building and the house shifted. We live upstairs in a barndominion. My first thought was that one of the horses fell into the walls
Los Alamos, N. M. 87544 / MMI IV (Light shaking): Sitting in the upstairs of my house, I could feel the house sway back and forth several times for approximately 10-15 seconds.
Los alamos,NM / MMI V (Moderate shaking): the wall moved the opposite direction of my fixed chair and I shook back and forth for a few seconds.
Los Alamos / MMI IV (Light shaking): Table shaking during the breakfast. Because I lived in California, I know the drill. I was on the second floor
Gallina, NM / MMI V (Moderate shaking): When I was in the garden this morning around 9:00, I heard a big “boom!” And felt the earth shake. I live in Gallina.
Lands of Ruby Holt (homestead in SFNF) / MMI III (Weak shaking)
Los Alamos, NM 87544 / MMI IV (Light shaking)
