    Earthquake in Orlando

    I read somewhere that there was an earthquake in the Gulf of Mexico and that it was felt in Orlando, right where WDW is at. It happened around 11:00am and lasted for about 5 seconds. It was just a little tremor from what I heard.

    I live in Tampa, and I felt it for about 20 seconds. It shook my bed (yes I'm a bum and was still in bed) and I thought it was the washer spinning an unbalanced load or something. It was freaky!

    Whoa. I didn't even think of that. If there was a tsunami, would it have gone all the way over to the east side of Florida do you think?

    Most likely. I didn't feel it. I'm in Miami!

    Hmm very interesting. I have never heard of an earthquake over here.

    I hadn't heard that. My brother lives in Orlando. I may have to see what he felt/did, etc.
