An hour ago USGS reported that a 4.2-magnitude earthquake struck 30 miles north of Mentor, Lake County, Ohio, USA at a shallow depth of 10km.

The exact magnitude, epicenter, and depth of the quakes might revised later on as seismologists review their data and calculations, or else as other agencies issue their report.

Based on preliminary data it is believed that the earthquake did not cause any significant damage to the infrastructure. Towns or cities that might have felt a weak shaking include Richmond (pop. 400) located 26 miles from the epicenter, Painesville (pop. 19,800) located 28 miles from the epicenter, Mentor (pop. 46,900) 30 miles away, Willoughby (pop. 22,600) 32 miles away, Euclid (pop. 47,700) 36 miles away, Collinwood (pop. 34,200) 38 miles away, and Cleveland Heights (pop. 45,000) 41 miles away.
