Minor earthquake beneath Lake Erie
Other news: Tall ships will sail into Cleveland for the 4th

  • Earthquake registered 3.2 off Fairport Harbor
  • Tall ships headed for Cleveland
  • Earthquake registered 3.2 off Fairport Harbor
    A minor earthquake has struck below Lake Erie with no injuries or damages reported.

    The 3.2 magnitude quake that hit around 3:48 a.m. Monday was felt by northeastern Ohio residents in Painesville, Mentor and Fairport Harbor east of Cleveland.

    Mike Hansen of the state's Ohio Seismic Network says quakes in that area of Lake Erie are common though it has been quiet recently.

    Monday's quake was about three miles northwest of Fairport Harbor below the lake, about 12 miles northwest of the Perry nuclear plant.


    Tall ships headed for Cleveland 
    A dozen historic war ships are sailing into the Port of Cleveland this week as the city revives its Tall Ships Festival.

    The festival runs Wednesday through Sunday, the ships will provide a glimpse at the kind of wooden sailing vessels used to win the War of 1812. It's the first gathering of the replica ships in Cleveland since 2010.

    Later this summer, the ships will help re-enact the Battle of Lake Erie, which happened 200 years ago and ensured control of the lake for the U.S. for the remainder of the war.
