This is something you don't hear around our neck of the woods often -- "an earthquake hit today."

The U.S. Geological Survey reports there was a light earthquake that hit at 11:47am on Sunday in the Gulf of Mexico.

The National Weather Service says it was located 120 miles southeast of Grand Isle or 160 miles southeast of New Orleans.

If you felt something, the Geological Survey asks you to add your response here.

A light earthquake such as this one doesn't usually do much damage, but it could cause shaking of indoor objects and rattling noises. Additionally, the Weather Service reported that there was no tsunami threat from this earthquake.
