Earthquake Hits South of Miami; Effects Felt in Key West
Yep -- what the headline says.
The US Geological Survey is reporting that there was an earthquake 38km N of Corralillo, Cuba.
People in Key West reportedly felt it:
The quake happened at 3:58 p.m.
a friend of mine who lives in Key West felt the earth quake. He said it was soft, swaying side to side. He thought he was going crazy!— Jesenia ☮ (@jstreet22) January 9, 2014
There is no tsunami danger:
That, I imagine, wouldn't end well. MT @NWSKeyWest: 5.0 earthquake has occurred 110 miles SE of Key West. There is no tsunami danger.— Corey (@richardpwnsner) January 9, 2014
And this guy asks what we're all wondering -- what is an earthquake doing here? Scram!
An earthquake 200 miles away from me and I didn't feel it?? WTF is an earthquake doing happening here? Between Key West and Cuba!— Mike Carroll (@countrydarts) January 9, 2014
