Tumon Bay, Guam / Light shaking (MMI IV)
(Guam, 351 km NE of epicenter) : It had a slow swaying motion that seemed to last for about 10 seconds. (reported through EMSC)
Agat (Guam, 335 km NE of epicenter) : It only felt like a 3.5 /- magnitude. I have felt them often while working in my home office. I was surprised to read that this was a 6.2. (reported through EMSC)
