(This is the only "earthquake font" that would copy.  I can't delete the other letters.)

Yes, we felt the 7.3 earthquake from Nicaragua Monday night, October 13, 2014.
It’s the strongest, longest one during our three years in Central America.
The yellow country in the map is El Salvador.  
The upside triangle country below us is Nicaragua.
                                          {A couple of hours later: They're saying that the epicenter was now at the southern tip of El Salvador on the Pacific Coastline.  It was 7.4, and lasted 23 seconds.  It seemed much longer sitting through it.}

9:51 p.m. 7.3 Earthquake 67Km WSW of Jiquilillo, Nicaragua.
This is the only one we felt.
Exactly 10 minutes later:
10:01 p.m. 5.0 Earthquake 90Km WSW of Jiquilillo, Nicaragua.
Tuesday, 14 Oct 2014
4:23 a.m. 4.4 Earthquake 94KM WSW of Masachapa, Nicaragua
6:27 a.m. 4.6 Earthquake 81Km WSW of Jiquilillo, Nicaragua
Everyone came out into the hallway after the minute or so
of our furniture shaking and the floors rolling.  
President López called from his home to tell us to leave the building because of after shocks,
but Majanos said to just have

shoes, a sweater, flash light and other things 
ready to leave the building if we felt more.  
We shook longer than the earthquake lasted. Scary!
