Minor earthquake hits below Lake Erie, no injuries

CLEVELAND (AP) — A minor earthquake has struck below Lake Erie with no injuries or damages reported.

The 3.2 magnitude quake that hit around 3:48 a.m. Monday was felt by northeastern Ohio residents in Painesville, Mentor and Fairport Harbor east of Cleveland.

Mike Hansen of the state’s Ohio Seismic Network says quakes in that area of Lake Erie are common though it has been quiet recently.

Monday’s quake was about three miles northwest of Fairport Harbor below the lake.
