Three more quakes rumble under Lake county Friday
Three more quakes struck in the Madison Township area of Lake County Friday afternoon, according to data from the United States Geological Survey.
According to USGS, the three quakes struck in relatively quick succession between 11:33am and 12:16pm, with magnitudes between 2.2 and 2.4 on the Richter scale.
On the USGS website for the quakes, citizens are able to report information about where and when they felt rumbles, data which USGS uses to create safety information and build their knowledge of earthquakes and their effects.
Two citizens reported the second of the three quakes, and three reported feeling the final one. The first quake, which was the strongest of the three at 2.4 on the Richter scale, wasn't reported by anyone in the area on the USGS website.
21 News reached out to Madison Township police, who said they were unable to confirm whether any reports had come in about the quakes.
The three quakes come after another 2.3 was recorded in Lake county on Thursday, and a 4.0 quake and 2.3 aftershock rocked Lake and Ashtabula counties on Sunday, August 27th. At that time, Madison Township told 21 News that hundreds called reporting the quake, but no damage was reported.
The last time Youngstown felt a quake that large was back on New Year's Eve in 2011.
The USGS says it's very rare to feel quakes under a magnitude of 3.0 on the Richter scale, though some may feel light rumbles in favorable conditions.
