ANNA, Ohio (AP) - A small earthquake has shaken a rural area of western Ohio.
Michael Hansen of the Ohio Seismic Network says preliminary data show that the 2.9 magnitude quake hit Shelby County between the towns of Botkins and Anna at about 9:06 p.m yesterday.
Anna's administrator, Jon Hulsmeyer, says the quake lasted about five seconds and was accompanied by a loud boom. A sheriff's dispatcher says there were no reports of damage.
Shelby County, between Toledo and Dayton, is where Ohio's largest earthquake took place in 1937. The 5.4 quake toppled chimneys, gravestones and a school in Anna.
