CLEVELAND RESIDENTS SHAKEN UP BY EARTHQUAKE
CLEVELAND: Cleveland residents were shaken up by an earthquake of an estimated magnitude 4 which hit just northeast of Cleveland in Lake Erie.
The earthquake hit at 10:50 a.m. EDT (eastern daylight time) Monday and was about 4 kilometers from Eastlake, a city of nearly 20,000 people.
Magnitude 4 earthquakes can cause moderate damage, however, there were no immediate reports of damage from the earthquake of preliminary depth of 5 kilometers.
The U.S. Geological Survey is so far collecting responses from people who felt the tremors.
BODIES RECOVERED IN A RAISED DANUBE BOAT
BUDAPEST: Several bodies were recovered from the wreckage of a tour boat that sank in the Danube River as it was lifted out of the river on Tuesday morning in the Hungarian capital.
Divers were searching the boat for more victims and four body bags were carried away on stretchers by the rescuers to a small police cruise boat waiting nearby.
The searching efforts consisting of a huge floating crane, barges and rescue personnel worked early in the morning at Budapest’s Margit Bridge, where the Hableany (Mermaid) sightseeing boat sank on May 29th this year.
Efforts to search for the missing victims of the accident and to raise the Hableany have been hindered by the Danube’s high springtime water levels which are expected to fall significantly over the coming days in Budapest.
