CLEVELAND (WSYX/WTTE) — A magnitude 4.0 earthquake has hit near the Ohio coast in Lake Erie.
The earthquake happened around 10:50 a.m. Monday. It was around 2.5 miles from Eastlake.
The tremors were felt as far away as Cranberry Township, Pennsylvania, nearly 99 miles away. In Northeast Ohio, the earthquake shook several Ohio Department of Transportation cameras.
USGS says the Northeast Ohio seismic zone has had moderately frequent earthquakes at least since the first one was reported in 1823. The largest earthquake. magnitude 4.8, caused damage in 1986.
Earthquakes too small to cause damage are felt two or three times per decade, per USGS.
