A strong, 6.0 earthquake in the Gulf of Mexico was felt throughout the Southeast but caused no apparent damage, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.Funny, I didn't feel anything. Oh well, it is interesting none the less. When I was searching on the web for info about the quake I found this blog post about the previous quake in the gulf earlier this year. It's an interesting read.
I really hope this area isn't heating up to be a seismic hot zone anytime soon. I don't think I could take hurricanes and earthquakes. Ugh!
btw,IRIS Seismic Monitor lists it as a 5.8 not a 6.0, not sure why there is a discrepancy.
