1. Yes! Here's the CNN article:

CNN reports 6.0 earthquake in Southeast U.S. earlier this morning

6.0 quake in Gulf shakes Southeast
POSTED: 1621 GMT (0021 HKT), September 10, 2006

ATLANTA, Georgia (CNN) -- A strong, 6.0 earthquake in the Gulf of Mexico was felt throughout the Southeast but caused no apparent damage, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

The earthquake occurred at a depth of 6.2 miles, the USGS said.

The quake, about 250 miles west of Tampa, Florida, was "pretty unusual" for the area, although a 5.2 magnitude quake was recorded nearby in February, said USGS seismic analyst Jessica Sigala.

People as far away as Stone Mountain, Georgia -- an Atlanta suburb -- reported feeling the quake at 10:56 a.m. ET.

12. I'm in St. Pete and didn't notice it.
We were in church at the time. Maybe it was covered by the percussion in the band.

It was felt over a large part of the southeast, but not in a lot of Florida.
