Felt reports
Ralph Bower from Guatemala City: Was awakened from sleep, both wife and I, and experienced significant shaking and rolling. This was by far the strongest quake we have felt since arriving here on March 10. No falling items or damage noticeable.
XX from Antigua: Woke up to my bed shaking followed by a train like sound.
