Los Cocos (140.4 km ENE of epicenter) [Map] / Weak shaking (MMI III) : It was really as if a truck passed directly next to our house, very shortly. My husbsnd went out of bed to see what was going on, thieves or what else? We did not directly think of earthquake although my husband said that at one experience in the Netherlands he experienced the same but stronger noise/ feeling and that appeared to be an earthquake. That is also the reason that i was looking at this website.
