Geologists are reporting a 4.0 magnitude earthquake in Lake Erie.

According to the U.S. Geological Survey, the tremor was centered less than five miles off the shoreline of Eastlake, Ohio shortly before 11 a.m. Monday.

That's the same magnitude as one experienced in Youngstown on New Year's Eve 2011, which was caused by geologic disruptions caused by a brine injection well.

According to the USGS, a magnitude 4 earthquake can be felt indoors by many people during the day and can waken some people at night.

Dishes and windows may rattle, while walls may make a cracking sound.

The sensation is like a heavy truck striking a building and cars can be noticeably rocked.
