Residents of Lake County were shaken Monday morning by an earthquake in Eastlake that officials now say registered 4.0.

Fire Chief Ted Whittington said the quake struck around 10:50 in the morning and lasted no longer than five seconds.

“So right now we’re kind of monitoring, because of the time of the day during the week we realize that there weren’t a lot of people at home when the quake actually happened. We’re running regular calls, so we’re doing our regular EMS and fire calls that we would normally see on a given day, so we’re just kind of at this point monitoring.”

A local nonprofit is organizing a combat robotics competition to get students interested in manufacturing.

The Alliance for Working Together is hosting RoboBots April 28, where robots created by students from school districts in Northeast Ohio will face off.

Executive Director Alice Cable says the event is an effort to push students to consider jobs in manufacturing as a way of addressing the industry’s labor shortage.

With thousands of jobs and millions of dollars in tax revenue at stake, some northeast Ohio political leaders are trying to get rate increases approved for the region’s nuclear power plants.

A Northeast Ohio school district is developing a website to connect students with manufacturing jobs in Lake and Geauga counties.

The site, NextWork, allows employers to interact with students by posting job openings and hosting forums to learn more about manufacturing.

Wickliffe Superintendent Joe Spiccia sees the site as a way for students not heading to college to find good-paying jobs.

Fall colors are peaking in these last days of a warmer than normal October. For nature lovers venturing out with their cameras, WKSU’s Vivian Goodman offers the guidance of one of Ohio’s leading landscape photographers in today’s State of the Arts.

It’s Indian summer, and we’re not just talking Tribe.

It was 70 degrees and partly cloudy on a late September day when we met Ian Adams just east of Painesville and a mile west of the Perry nuclear plant.

A Lake County sheriff's deputy shot and killed a stabbing suspect late last night, and authorities now say Thomas Hirko was holding a pellet gun when he confronted officers.

The deputies ordered the 54-year-old Hirko to drop the realistic-looking fake firearm. They say he refused and instead raised the gun toward them. At one point, Hirko reportedly said, "It's time to die."
