People :
Generally noticed indoors but not outside. Light sleepers may be awakened. Vibration may be likened to the passing of heavy traffic, or to the jolt of a heavy object falling or striking the building.

People :
Generally felt outside, and by almost everyone indoors. Most sleepers awakened. A few people alarmed.
Fittings :
Small unstable objects are displaced or upset. Some glassware and crockery may be broken. Hanging pictures knock against the wall. Open doors may swing. Cupboard doors secured by magnetic catches may open. Pendulum clocks stop, start, or change rate.

Environment :
Water made turbid by stirred up mud. Small slides such as falls of sand and gravel banks, and small rock-falls from steep slopes and cuttings. Instances of settlement of unconsolidated or wet, or weak soils. Some fine cracks appear in sloping ground. A few instances of liquefaction (i.e. small water and sand ejections).

MMI IX (Violent shaking) ?
Structures Many low standard buildings destroyed. Ordinary workmanship buildings heavily damaged, some collapse. Reinforced masonry or concrete buildings damaged, some with partial collapse. Buildings and bridges designed and built to resist earthquakes damaged in some cases, some with flexible frames seriously damaged. Damage or permanent distortion to some buildings and bridges, designed and built to normal use standards. Houses not secured to foundations shifted off. Brick veneers fall and expose frames.

    vers 7h30, nous avons été réveillé par une secousse, puis une deuxième ( c'est ce que j'ai ressenti, mais est ce qu'il y en a eu 2??). J'ai pris ma fille et nous avons rapidement descendu les 2 étages pour nous mettre en sécurité dans le jardin. J'ai également regardé la mer pour voir si elle ne baissait pas.( j'habite sur une péninsule)

    Se sintio en Rio Piedras/Guaynabo, sexto piso, me desperto.
    Lavare la ropa de cama y el calzoncillo..., nada agradable.

    but very unusual as we do not usually get quakes in Guyana
