Navojoa, Sonora, Mexico (111.3 km NE of epicenter) [Map] / Weak shaking (MMI III)
25 06.2N 111 16.4 / Light shaking (MMI IV) : At anchor near Isla Coronado near Loreto, BCS on sailboat. I was in stern of boat and felt the virbiration in the boat and my wife was down below and felt nothing. Out neighbors in the anchorage also felt the virbiration
Cd. Obregón, Sonora / Light shaking (MMI IV)
Alamos (Mexico, 142 km NE of epicenter) : I didn't feel it as much as notice the objects on my kitchen shelves were rattling. As my shelving isn't moveable, I realized that I had never heard any rattling before. I wrote down the time and then confirmed that it matched the time of the Baja earthquake when it was reported later in the day, (reported through EMSC)
