4.6 Earthquake Strikes Gulf of Mexico

The United States Geological Survey reported a 4.6 earthquake in the Gulf of Mexico this weekend, not far from the coast of Lousiana.

The earthquake was located 120 miles southeast of Grand Isle, Lousiana, and 160 miles west of New Orleans. It had a depth of 10 KM. The event did not trigger a tsunami.

Residents along the Gulf coast did not report feeling the earthquake. While rare, earthquakes in the Gulf of Mexico have happened in the past. No oil rigs were affected.
