I didn’t feel it as we were driving in the car. My husband felt the earthquake in Akron, Ohio. He thought someone was behind him pushing his chair! If you felt the quake, report it at the Ohio Seismic website.

The National Weather Service issued a Severe Thunderstorm Warning for Summit County, OH until 4:45pm. We just got home from the nasty weather where I could hardly see the roads – the flooded, branch filled roads!

    so glad that an earthquake here is like a novelty and ‘non-event’ and nobody gets hurt. I would hate to live where the mere mention of earthquake strikes panic!

    I moved to Columbus a year ago to get away from those pesky L.A. quakes. I didn’t feel it today, but apparently a lot of folks here in Columbus did. It was one of the lead stories on the news tonight.
