The earthquake may/might have caused the building's collapse.
Can anyone explain which is grammatically correct, may or might, in the above sentence?

The earthquake may have caused the building's collapse. It's a possibility that I am considering.
The earthquake might have caused the building's collapse. It's possible but not likely.
