BREWTON, Ala. (AP) — No damage is being reported after a weak earthquake occurred along the Alabama-Florida line. The U.S. Geological Survey reports that a magnitude 3.8 quake happened Thursday morning just north of Mount Carmel, Florida. The location is a mostly forested area southwest of Brewton, Alabama. The Escambia County Sheriff's Office says it hasn't gotten any calls about damage. But area residents reported feeling it in response to a question posed by the area National Weather Service office on its Facebook page. The quake occurred more than 6 miles beneath the surface.
