BREWTON, Ala. (AP) — No damage was reported after a weak earthquake occurred along the Alabama-Florida line Thursday morning.
The U.S. Geological Survey reported that a magnitude 4 quake happened just after 10 a.m. north of Mount Carmel, Florida. The location is a mostly forested area southwest of Brewton, Alabama.
The Escambia County Sheriff’s Office said it hadn’t gotten any calls about damage, but some area residents reported feeling it in response to a question posed by the area National Weather Service office on its Facebook page.
The quake occurred more than 6 miles beneath the surface, according to the Geological Survey.
