NORTHERN MID-ATLANTIC. (THECOUNT) — A magnitude 5.3 earthquake struck at 05:57 UTC in the Northern Mid-Atlantic region just as Hurricane Dorian churned above while on its path of sure destruction.

The 5.3 shaker may have struck in the middle of open ocean waters that are over 1,000 miles from the closest landfall, but what’s notable is it struck at the exactly time and area of Hurricane Dorian’s rage.
