Mild quake hits Lake County; no injuries reported

PAINESVILLE, Ohio (AP) - A mild earthquake shook parts of northeast Ohio along the Lake Erie shoreline on Monday. There were no immediate reports of injuries or property damage.
The U.S. Geological Survey's National Earthquake Information Center in Denver said the quake occurred about 3:21 p.m. and was centered near Painesville, located about 28 miles northeast of Cleveland.
It registered a magnitude of 3.4. Quakes in the 3.0-3.9 range typically are felt by few people, most often in upper floors, and give the sensation of a passing truck, the center said.
The dispatch center at the Lake County sheriff's office said two hours after the quake that it had received no reports of any injuries or property damage.
Ohio has had more than 120 mostly minor earthquakes in the past 200 years.
