There have been no reports of damage or injury.

A quake of this size would be felt by most people in that surrounding area, according to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources Division of Geologic Survey. Their seismic magnitude/intensity scales details such quakes can lead to breakage of dishes, windows, and plaster; unstable objects overturned; disturbance of trees, poles, and other tall objects.
