Mobile Bay Earthquake

Did you feel it? There was a weak earthquake in southern Mobile Bay Friday night around 10:30. It had a magnitude of 2.7, which is just barely strong enough for some folks to feel. It didn’t do any damage (it takes about a magnitude 5 to cause minor damage) and many folks in southern Mobile and Baldwin counties probably didn’t even notice it. It’s interesting though because we rarely get earthquakes of any magnitude around here, although around the world earthquakes of this magnitude happen one million times a year!

In February of 2011 there was a magnitude 3.5 earthquake just a few miles from this most recent one.

    I was surprised to see this article. I live beneath the flight pattern in south Baldwin County. I live in a mobile home which is on blocks. I often feel my home tremble. I had wondered if it was an earthquake. I called the City of Robertsdale to ask if they were aware of the tremble and what might have caused it. They always say no. If it was an earthquake, then I have felt it several times since I moved here in 1997. Imagine that! An earthquake! Smile.

  4. I almost never leave a response, but I looked through some remarks on this page Earthquake in Mobile Bay |
    Fox10tv.com Blogs. I do have a few questions
    for you if it’s okay. Is it just me or do a few of the remarks look like they are coming from brain dead people? :-P And, if you are posting at other online sites, I would like to follow you. Would you make a list of the complete urls of your social pages like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?
