Las Condes (Chile) (374 km S from epicenter)(no details): Oh, I thought they had stopped for a while. I was wrong. Our 16th floor apartment moved back and forth a bit, doors and light sways a bit but nothing fell. (via EMSC)

Las Condes (Chile) (373 km S from epicenter)(no details): I felt two waves in the fifth floor of a large hotel, the building was creaking and the room was moving in a rolling sensation. The second wave was stronger than the first. In the first, I wondered if it was work being done in the building. The second was big enough to be alarming and for me to wonder where I should go if it continued, and if it was already too late to leave the building! (via EMSC)
