Ovalle (4453.6 km NNW from epicenter) [Map] / MMI VI (Strong shaking) (via app)
La Serena (Chile) (87 km NE from epicenter)(no details): It just felt like someone was climbing onto the bunk bed above me. The bed creaked and wobbled for 2-3 seconds then stopped. There was no one else in the room with me. Although very small, this was the first earthquake I have felt. I waited to see if there would be more tremors, but none appeared to follow. (via EMSC)
