Earthquake in Mobile BayNovember 10th, 2012 at 7:27 pm by Matt Barrentine under FOX10 Stormtracker Weather
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.
