WILLOWICK, Ohio — Lake County had their second earthquake in less than a week on Tuesday.
A small 1.7 magnitude earthquake happened offshore in Lake Erie near Willowick around 12:30 p.m., according to the United States Geological Survey.
On Saturday, a 2.6 magnitude earthquake happened offshore in Lake Erie, but was felt by residents in Eastlake and Willoughby.
Residents most likely didn't feel this earthquake because of how small it was.
"Seismic activity of 2.5 and above can generally be felt," ODNR Public Information Officer David Roorbach previously told News 5. "This is a known epicenter of natural earthquakes, due to the geologic history of the area. Seismologists from the Ohio Department of Natural Resources continue to monitor the seismic activity."
