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.

Other areas were feeling the effects as well.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
