VIDEO: Earthquake shakes Cleveland, Ohio


CLEVELAND, Ohio (AP) — Multiple Ohio Department of Transportation cameras rocked as an earthquake hit the Cleveland area on Monday morning.

Federal geologists say an earthquake of an estimated magnitude 4 has hit just northeast of Cleveland in Lake Erie, shaking up residents who flooded dispatch centers with calls.

There were no immediate reports of damage from the earthquake of preliminary depth of 3.11 miles (5 kilometers). The U.S. Geological Survey is collecting responses from people who felt tremors. Magnitude 4 earthquakes can cause moderate damage.

The earthquake hit at 10:50 a.m. EDT Monday and was about 2.5 miles (4 kilometers) from Eastlake, a city of nearly 20,000 people.
