MADISON, Ohio (WIVB) — Not too far southwest of Erie, Pennsylvania, a 3.6-magnitude earthquake took place in Ohio.

The earthquake, which happened near the Lake Erie shoreline northeast of Cleveland, happened Sunday night around 10:43 p.m. The United States Geological Survey (USGS) says it was estimated to be five kilometers deep, give or take two kilometers.

According to them, nearly 1,200 responses came from people in Ohio, Pennsylvania, and even western New York and Canada, who claim to have felt the quake, even if to a weak degree.

One particular News 4 viewer in the Erie County suburbs told us “Both my kids came running down frantically saying their beds shook, and my son’s action figures fell off his dresser,” but said she was “downstairs and felt nothing.”

Originally, the earthquake was reported as being magnitude 4.0, but it was later downgraded.
