I think, due to location & felt range, this does deserve it's own thread. Otherwise, if this was anywhere where the magnitude or frequency is common,
I'd not bother with a thread.
As per the USGS
, this took a bunch of folks by surprise.
M5.1 - 24km NNW of Corralillo, Cuba 2014-01-09 20:57:43 UTC
23.189°N 80.677°W depth=10.0km (6.2mi)
24km (15mi) NNW of Corralillo, Cuba
36km (22mi) NE of Marti, Cuba
51km (32mi) N of Los Arabos, Cuba
56km (35mi) ENE of Cardenas, Cuba
174km (108mi) E of Havana, Cuba
The felt report section has it being felt as far as here:
Daytona Beach (32119) FL United States of America 2 1 661 km
There's one from NC, too, but I think that person may have felt a local one close to the same time, it's listed as a 2-something near them.
News report out of Orlando.
Not much to the report, but
it's an example for the "blip" this made in the news. Not anything too major, but enough to get attention for the area it's in.
has a number of
first-person accounts from around the state. Clearly, people not on ground level got a movement surprise, hah.
And before anyone asks, no I have no idea if this is a forewarning of sorts. It could be all it does there, it could be a precursor, dunno. I'm sure
one of our resident experts would be able to weigh in on that better than I can.
