I thought a truck was going down our cobblestone street here in Ixtapa. Then Betty came out to the patio and asked If I felt it.

These earthquakes are the weirdest things. Coming up the stairs to our apartment and my husband says he felt a pretty strong shake as I was coming up. I'm at the door going "what earthquake"? Didn't feel a thing.

Heard it first like a drum roll or artillery in the distance and then Rock and Roll! Not a jolt like AK and CA and WA

A P and S wave for sure. Like Iran in '62.
