3. I saw some reports that said it was felt as far away as Tampa. Makes no sense.

Tampa is 100 miles further away from Miami than I am, and I didn't feel a thing.

Then again, I was in an earthquake in San Diego and didn't feel that either. I'm starting to think I may be naturally quaky or something.
