Japan Earthquake Raised Water Table …… In South Florida

The power of nature

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — The devastating earthquake that shook Japan caused a temporary jolt in groundwater levels throughout much of Florida, officials said.

The South Florida Water Management District reports that a network of groundwater gauges registered a jump of up to three inches in the water table from Orlando to the Florida Keys about 34 minutes after the quake struck on March 11.

The oscillations were observed for about two hours and then stabilized.

Unf*cking believable, eh?

    The 9.2 quake that hit Alaska in 1964 did something similar, changing the levels in wells in Florida. Pretty darned impressive.
