Earthquake in Alaska caused fluctuations in groundwater level in Florida

A recent earthquake of magnitude 7.9 that occurred off the coast of Alaska led to fluctuations in the groundwater level in Florida, which is located 6000 kilometers from the epicenter of the earthquake.

US scientists were surprised to discover the strange events that occurred after the powerful earthquake in Alaska, which, although it was of great magnitude, did not cause any damage, and the tsunami waves reached just half a meter in height, but unusual effects were manifested in the state of Florida where the geological observation system The US service recorded changes in the groundwater table.

For example, in Fort Lauderdale, the groundwater level dropped by 3.3 cm, while in Madison it increased by 5.5 cm. Scientists associate the event with the impact of seismic waves that spread after the earthquake.
