(Panama) (175 km N from epicenter)(no details): People sitting outside where there was loud music and lots of people did not seem to notice.

Nothing was physically disturbed. (via EMSC)

Boquete (Panama) (96 km NW from epicenter)(no details): I actually felt dizzy from the rolling effect, sort of rock and roll, the sound was loud like thunder it lasted a lot longer than others last year. Everything rattled and clattered, nothing fell in our condo. (via EMSC)
