Earthquakes occur in many regions of the world. Why are there no major earthquakes in Florida?

There have been earthquakes in Florida, but there has been several shocks there. Only one was big enough to cause damage. It was in January 1879, in St. Augustine, plaster was torn off the walls and items were knocked off the shelf. Florida does not get as many major earthquakes because it is not near a plate boundary. Florida may feel the effects of an earthquakes that came from somewhere else, but the chances of having a major earthquakes aren't as high as say, California would.
