MENTOR, Ohio — A small earthquake under Lake Erie was felt Tuesday by people northeast of Cleveland but caused no injuries or damage, state seismologists said.


It was kind of weird. I thought it was thunder and then my fish started jumping around.

I read somewhere today that insurance companies have started to cancel and/or not renew and no longer issuing earthquake coverage in northern Ohio. I've been following daily US earthquake data for over ten years and noticed an increase in Lake Erie quakes about a year ago.

They're something calling injection-induced earthquakes. Waste injection deep into underground spaces over the past years occurring near the Dunkirk and Long Point Escarpment areas may have upset things.

I wonder if the recent drop in water levels in Lakes Superior and Michigan have to do with these quakes.

I didn't feel a damn thing. Damn! A quake off of Lake County of 3.1 prolly can't be felt this far west.

I remember the one in '86, I believe it was, which was I think 5.1, and centered in the same vicinity. I certainly felt that one.

They can't dump it in the rivers either, they burn up. Sorry Falcon.

You need to ask KROC for permission to say such things.  Wink

Today's Plain Dealer had a cover story about the rise in earthquake frequency. Pretty bland and uninformative other than the rehash of local geology. Nothing about the injection plants.


Up, up and away!

I remember reading about one near Sharon/Youngstown that was like a 5.1 or a 5.2. I think the tremors could be felt as far away as Pittsburgh. I asked different people about that quake and they said they heard the windows in some of the high-rise office buildings shaking, as well as some furniture. I don't know if that was the same quake from 1986 that you mentioned or if that was a later one. I think the one I am mentioning was one from about 10 to 12 years ago.

Someone had once told me that there's a couple fault lines that run through PA. One near Lake Erie, and another closer to Philly. Can anyone tell if this is accurate?

I can. The fault lines near Philly, out where I am actually -- near Lancaster, were actually formed when the Appalacian Mountains formed, so these faults are deep below the surface. They're also not very active either, so any earthquake that does occur is usually minor. The faults up along L.E., I think there's one that runs south to right under the fountain at Point Park in the Burgh. I learned about that in grade school.
