Local Earthquakes

Magan Engle


Near the Florida-Alabama state line there have been numerous accounts of small earthquakes that were brought to the attention of the public. There was a report of 4 earthquakes that ranged from a magnitude of 2.2 to 3.1. These earthquakes are the first to be recorded in the area since 1997. There is a possibility that the oil drilling operations could have caused the frequent earthquakes.
