Earthquakes on the West Coast seem fairly common, but it isn’t terribly often that we hear about earthquakes in the Midwest. Today is one exception. This morning around 10:50AM, a 4.0 magnitude earthquake struck near Eastlake, Ohio (slightly to the to the Northeast of Cleveland, on Lake Erie).
Sometimes the tremors can be felt in neighboring areas, but so far, there aren’t any reports of feeling the rumbles in the greater Flint area. Seems that this one was mild enough to stay in Northeast Ohio.
The surprising fact? According to EarthQuakeTrack.com, Ohio has had 9 earthquakes in the past year. I would have guessed it closer to 1 every couple years!
At the time of publishing, thankfully no injuries or major damage have been reported.
