This quake was felt far and wide! My niece has family in San Miguel El Salvador and they're shaken up but thankfully doing alright.

The quake was felt widely across the region, with shaking reported in Guatemala, southern Belize, El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, western Panama and far southeastern Mexico according to the USGS.

So far there have been no reports of major damage, but concerns remain about the damage potential from the quake. Reports to the USGS "Did You Feel It?" page indicated a seismic intensity as high as VIII (eight) on the 12-point Mercalli scale near San Salvador, the capital of El Salvador. Shaking of that magnitude can cause significant damage.

Good post
Yeah it was felt in most of Central America.
The pacific has been shaking quite a bit this week. It was quiet for awhile. Of course it's normal for the pacific ring of fire to have significant quakes but I did notice it slowed down here, as far as the 6+ mag events go. I'm not any good at looking that up to confirm , it was just something I noticed. An unscientific opinion if you will.
There's been plenty of M class solar flares the past week. No x class as far as I know. Some theorize that effects earth's tectonic plates. Others will say no to that.
