21.5 km NNE of epicenter [Map] / Moderate shaking (MMI V) / rattling, vibrating / 2-5 s : Started lighter and became much more intense after a couple of seconds with everything rattling in the room. On the first floor.  
Mazunte / Moderate shaking (MMI V) / 2-5 s : We felt and heard it. Woke up by it. There was one again 3hrs later at 5.00. That one was more noisy and stronger. And longer. A house broke and a fire started. So was a bit more intense.  
21 km NNE of epicenter [Map] / Weak shaking (MMI III) / rattling, vibrating
