An earthquake registering 4.2 was detected in Lake Erie, a half-mile north of Eastlake, shortly before 11 a.m. Monday morning.
The Ohio Department of Natural Resources said an aftershock of 2.2 was detected eight minutes later at 10:58 a.m. Both recordings are considered preliminary, said Eric Heis, a spokesman for the Ohio Department of Natural Resources.
ODNR initially reported the quake at 4.4, then revised it down to a still preliminary 4.2. If confirmed at 4.2, it would mark just the sixth Ohio earthquake of at least 4.0 since 1950. Also, the U.S. Geological Survey reported the quake at 4.0.
Reaction was swift on social media, with reports of people feeling the earthquake mainly from throughout Lake County and parts of Cuyahoga County. Mapping by the U.S. Geological Survey showed reports concentrated across the lakeshore from Ashtabula to Cuyahoga counties, and south to Summit and Medina counties.
