There was a 4.0 earthquake near here yesterday.


There was a magnitude 4.0 earthquake offshore, near Eastlake, Ohio yesterday. No reports of damage or injury.

Ohio is not allowed to have earthquakes; that was not included in their charter from 1840-whatever. Send it back.

Pretty cool, I felt it where I am 26 miles from the epicenter.

I knew exactly what it was when it happened. I heard a boom and then my chair swayed in a very particular way. I remember the same feeling from 2011 when there was an earthquake in Virginia and we felt it all the way up here. I was sitting in the exact same place.

Not too many people I talked to down here felt it. I think I was just in the right exact place - sitting on a wheeled chair on a wooden floor above a basement.

Didn't feel a thing on the west side. Saw some videos that looked like cheap attempts to simulate an earthquake by shaking the camera.

The first earthquake I ever felt, long before I moved to California, was in Urbana, Illinois.

Did Lake Erie slosh?

The quake was in Lake Erie, not sure it was related to fracking. Here's a map of the epicenter and here's a fracking map of the area . Looks like all the fracking is well inland, in southeast Ohio.

I don't think I knew this but there seems to have been a 2.7 earthquake very near the same place in 2013.

burpo I'm actually sort of bummed at myself for not having changed my routine for over 8 years now

I grew up in Eastlake. We never had any earthquakes when I was a kid.

4.0?

Meh.

I spent most my life in SCal. 4.0 is a a fun ride. Especially on the 8th floor.

When we lived in KY (Mr VOW was in the US Army), I felt a tremor. I looked at him and said, "Hey, no mistaking what THAT was!" And we learned about the New Madrid Fault then.

California considers earthquakes to be entertainment.

As a contrast, tornados scare me shitless.

I too was wondering about Lake Erie sloshing, considering the epicenter was in the lake. I haven't seen any mention of it, though. There are salt mines up in that area, under the lake, but they didn't report any problems due to the quake.

I am former Mo resident, and read that 1811 New Madrid quake (there were actually 3 quakes between 1811-1812) was felt as far away as Boston and Gulf states. As 20year resident of Cali, I laugh when Cleveland complains/worries about quakes--the previous "quake"? that occurred while I was working downtown on 22nd floor and my coffee cup didn't even shake!

what makes my jar drop is Eastlake residents making t-shirts saying " I survived earthquake"!! I survived 1989 Loma Prieta quake, which caused more damage, but no t-shirts!

I'm pretty sure one of the main crops of the Northeast Ohio region is the Small Press Clever Tee Shirt. You don't hear about it because we don't export them - they're all for us.
