Why did I receive an alert for an earthquake that already happened?

I received an Earthquake alert that happened days/months ago at a location that’s not relevant to me.

These alerts come directly from USGS(https://www.usgs.gov/natural-hazards/earthquake-hazards/earthquakes). We suggest you contact USGC to ask why they sent an alert through their public feed for an earthquake that already happened days/months ago.
