Cleveland area rocked by 4.0-magnitude earthquake
Residents in the Cleveland metro area got a jolt on Monday morning.
The U.S. Geological Survey reported a magnitude 4.0 earthquake was registered at 10:55 a.m., centered in Lake Erie, just off the shore of Eastlake, Ohio.
The USGS received hundreds of reports from the surrounding area, and as far away as Cranberry.
There were no initial reports of damages or injuries.
Someone in the area posted a video of the shaking to YouTube.
The Ohio Department of Transportation also caught the quake on its traffic cams.

The city of Mentor, Ohio, located just a few miles northeast of Eastlake, was inundated with 911 calls.
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.
