KEY WEST, Fla. - A 5.1 magnitude earthquake centered off the northern coast of Cuba was reportedly felt in the Florida Keys. The earthquake occurred at 3:57 p.m. about 110 miles southeast of Key West. "It is unusual here. I've been here for 28 years and never felt an earthquake here in the Keys," said Monroe County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Becky Herrin.
National Weather Service alerts said that there was no tsunami warning being issued for Key West.
Andy McKenzie, a groundwater scientist at the British Geological Survey, told Sky News that even if the rain stopped today, so much water is soaking through the soil that levels are likely to keep rising for another two months. The risk of flooding could remain high until May, he said.
