Parts of the Gulf Coast were rattled yesterday morning after an earthquake struck along the Alabama-Florida line.
The U.S. Geological Survey said the quake was centered about two miles northwest of Mount Carmel, Florida.
After initially reporting a magnitude 4.0 earthquake, the USGS reduced the magnitude to a 3.8.
The quake occurred more than 6 miles beneath the surface, according to the Geological Survey.
In Florida, earthquakes are very rare.
The state’s last significant earthquake was among a series of quakes recorded in nearly the same location back in March of 2019.
