(UPDATED 11:10 p.m.) Did you feel the earth move?

There were no reports of damage, but quite a few local people said they noticed the East Coast earthquake reported at 1:51 p.m. Tuesday.

Tyler Wallace, 15, Monroeville, was at the Simply Gifts shop in Milan.

"We were sitting there, and we were all talking. All of a sudden, the whole building started to shake," Wallace said.

"It lasted for about a minute. Nothing fell, but everything shook," he said.

The quake had little effect on Cedar Point.

"One or two people in the office said they felt it," said Cedar Point spokesman Robin Innes, who did not notice anything himself.

After checking, Innes reported, "It didn't affect operations in any way."

Sharon Wilson, 63, Sandusky, was closer to the epicenter than many Sandusky residents. She was at the Naval Academy in Annapolis, Md., Tuesday afternoon, accompanying friends attending a ship reunion.

"It felt like we were going to fall over. It made you feel real dizzy," she said. "Nobody was hurt. A couple of the buildings had cracks in them."

 We were boating on Lake Erie.   Maybe that was a mini-tsunami we saw - we just thought it was the ferryboat wake.

The Quarry makes bigger vibrations and lasts longer than that little rattle, How can you tell ? Come out to Perkins area and feel the ground shake. Was at a local store about ten years ago, The Quarry had a HUGH blast the whole store shook! the family in line ahead of us ran out and huddled in the parking lot. They were from California ,we laughed but still felt bad for them

Hmm
