If I think that I felt an earthquake, should I report it?
The Ohio Seismic Network encourages everyone to report shaking that they think might be an earthquake. These reports should be filed on the U.S. Geological Survey's Community Internet Intensity Map web site http://pasadena.wr.usgs.gov/shake/cus/. The reports from Ohio and adjacent areas are immediately forwarded via e-mail to the Ohio Seismic Network, where records from the network's 25 seismograph stations are evaluated to see if it was indeed an earthquake. Generally, an e-mail is sent to the respondent to let them know whether or not it was a genuine earthquake. Telephone reports during non-working hours may be given to the seismologist on duty at 614-325-1051.
