There are reports of people feeling it throughout northeast Ohio.

Are earthquakes rare here? Well, uncommon may be a better word for it. Many remember the January 31, 1986 5.0 quake in this same area. Here's more info on that one. https://t.co/b4eEGWQqRd @wkyc #earthquake @wtam1100— Betsy Kling - WKYC Weather (@BetsyKling) June 10, 2019
