Earthquake hits south florida!

By Elle Bee

Yes, you read that headline correctly. Yesterday afternoon I was sitting on my couch minding my own black business when the unimaginable happened: an earthquake! The doors in my house began to rattle and at first I thought someone was trying to rob me, after all, this is Miami. Either that, or Casper the friendly ghost wasn’t so friendly. I got up the courage to go towards the garage and check it out. I know, it was very Caucasian brave of me, but I needed to know what was happening. As it turns out military officials said it could have been aircraft testing, and experts say they are unsure what the rattle was, but it was not an earthquake. But many local residents beg to differ, including myself. Y’all either way I am shooketh! See the WPLG news clip below.
