  • Maracas - I was on the balcony then i heard the door shaking as though someone was banking on it. Soon after i felt the ground below me trembling... then i ran back to my room, realizing an earthquake was happening.
  • Tacarigua - Felt the foundation of the house rocking.
  • California - I was in my kitchen on ground floor and the shaking was quite obvious. Furniture was shaking, loose objects that could swing freely were put into motion by the quake.
  • Crown Point - I was lying on the bed in our sturdily built little one-story building. I felt definite shaking come up from the ground, and knew it must be an earth tremor. The cupboard door in our room was swinging, but nothing fell off the shelves or tables. I got up and walked outside because I was curious to see what the hotel staff thought of it. The tremor was not stron enough to affect my balance, and was over by the time I got outside.There was no damage at all within the hotel complex.
  • Diego Martin - No damages sustained to property surprisingly as it was so strong that I was outdoors at the time and saw the house sway to the right..never seen anything like this..scary!!

    1. 11/1/16 @ 11:28 p.m. Sitting at computer and the screen started shaking. It felt like someone heavily stomping in the next room. I noticed the time and became alert. The strong vibrations went on for several seconds. I immediately went to FB- social media, and numerous people were also reporting feeling this in the Tulsa area.
