LAKE COUNTY, Ohio — The United States Geological Survey confirmed a second earthquake occurred on Wednesday in the same area as an earthquake that was recorded Tuesday in Timberlake, Ohio, in Lake County.
The 1.9 magnitude earthquake was recorded at 5:25 a.m., about 3 miles north of Timberlake, the USGS confirmed.
The earthquake that occurred on Tuesday measured at a 2.8 magnitude and was located about 1.25 miles northwest of Timberlake.
Viewers on Tuesday said it was felt in Eastlake, Willoughby, Wickliffe, Willowick, Mayfield Heights, and as far away as Shaker.
Lake County is no stranger to the occasional earthquake. In December 2019, News 5 reported two earthquakes that happened in a matter of a week offshore in Lake Erie.
One of the earthquakes recorded in December 2019 measured 2.6, a scale of seismic activity that can generally be felt by residents in the area.
"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."
