FAIRPORT HARBOR, Ohio — Some Northeast Ohio residents who felt a distinct shaking early Monday morning can say they’ve experienced an earthquake.

A 3.2 magnitude tremor shook Fairport Harbor and surrounding areas around 3:48 a.m. Monday, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

A Fox 8 News viewer who lives there said he felt his entire house shake, but only for about two seconds.

Another viewer in the Mentor Headlands area said a loud rumble and vibration was enough to wake the household out of a deep sleep.

According to the U.S. Geological Survey, the Northeast Ohio seismic zone has had moderately frequent earthquakes since the first one was reported in 1823.
