A magnitude 4.0 earthquake has hit northeast of Cleveland, Ohio, the U.S. Geological Survey said. According to the USGS, the earthquake hit at 10:50 a.m. EDT in Lake Erie.
Our sister station in Cleveland, WEWS, said areas near the quake include Euclid, Eastlake and Mentor, and fire departments in each city confirmed feeling a rumbling.
We also felt the shaking. We suspect that it was an earthquake but are awaiting further information. No reports of damage but getting lots of calls asking what it was.

We are waiting for the experts to affirm what was probably an earthquake here in NEO but please tune in to the news. Dispatch is being overwhelmed with 911 calls - we don't know anymore than you do at this point.
