Merida (Venezuela, 183 km SW of epicenter) : It was an horizontal movement not vertical, but it last just for 2-3 seconds. It was not noise, just the displacement feeling, like a rocking chair. I live on the Bocono fault at Merida City, Venezuela; geographic coordinates 8.59 -71.15 (according google maps) (reported through EMSC)
