HAMBURG – A magnitude 2.3 earthquake shook parts of the Buffalo Southtowns just before 5 p.m. Tuesday afternoon.According to the United States Geological Survey, the earthquake was registered at 4:40 p.m. with an epicenter location of Wanakah, a hamlet located on the Lake Erie Shoreline of Hamburg.No damage has been reported as of publish time.Earthquakes that register less than a 2.5 magnitude are hard to feel by humans even if the distance the quake traveled into the Earth’s crust is shallow. Seismic activity in Western and Central New York is not that uncommon. The Clarendon-Linden Fault runs through the region splitting Allegany County and points to the north and is often the cause of most of the Seismic activity across the region.

If the Angels do bring Cahill back as a reliever, he could reprise a role he had with the 2016 Cubs, who won the World Series. That season, Cahill had a 2.74 ERA, pitching out of the bullpen 49 times. He was not on the postseason, roster, though.One complication of having Cahill in the bullpen is he would be another reliever who can’t be optioned, meaning the Angels would have less flexibility to shuffle fresh arms up from Triple-A.As for the rotation, the Angels have a variety of ways they could go. There are currently four members of the rotation on the active roster: Tyler Skaggs, Andrew Heaney, Griffin Canning and Félix Peña.With José Suarez recently optioned to Triple-A, the Angels will use someone who isn’t currently in the majors when they have a spot open next week. Although they have an off day Monday, Ausmus said they’d rather give the starters an extra day of rest than compress the rotation one time through.Suarez can’t return until he’s been down for 10 days, but the Angels could bring up Nick Tropeano or Dillon Peters. JC Ramírez, who is rehabbing from Tommy John surgery, has another start scheduled at Triple-A for early in the week, but he could be up by next weekend.

Whoever voted across the country – and I’m sure there are some Japanese fans who watch the game – thank you. It means a lot, not only to me but my friends and family, who supported me to get to this point.”In order to win the starting spot on the All-Star team, La Stella will need to outpoll Houston’s José Altuve and the Yankees’ DJ LeMahieu, the other finalists. Online voting will be Tuesday and Wednesday.La Stella, however, doesn’t seem to be interested in campaigning: “Whoever goes is deserving. There’s not a wrong choice.”Related Articles ST. LOUIS — The Angels are considering the idea of bringing Trevor Cahill back to the majors as a reliever, a role in which he flourished with the Chicago Cubs a few years ago.“He’s pitched 50-plus times out of the bullpen,” Manager Brad Ausmus said Saturday morning. “It gives us options. Our goal is to make our pitching better, so we’ll consider that as an option.”Cahill, who is on the injured list because of elbow inflammation, has posted a 7.18 ERA this season, starting in 11 games and pitching after an opener once.In his rehab outing Friday night at Salt Lake, he gave up seven runs in 2 1/3 innings. Ausmus said Cahill came through the outing fine physically. Angels’ poor pitching spoils an Albert Pujols milestone He also joked that if the Angels social media department asked him to promote himself, he’d “fight them tooth and nail.”Mike Trout is also a candidate for an outfield spot, although he should easily win election as an All-Star starter for the seventh time.ALSOAndrelton Simmons, who is back in Anaheim in the final stages of rehab from a sprained ankle, “felt good yesterday,” Ausmus said. Simmons could be activated on the upcoming homestand, which would be just five weeks after suffering a Grade 3 ankle sprain.UP NEXTAngels (LHP Tyler Skaggs, 6-6, 4.61) at Cardinals (RHP Miles Mikolas, 5-7, 4.48), 4:05 p.m., ESPN Angels’ Mike Trout working on his defense, thanks to Twitter Angels offense breaks out to split doubleheader with Astros

Palm Beach County School District officials are discussing a possible delay to the start of the school year, due to the coronavirus pandemic.Florida is seeing a spike in new COVID-19 infections, including 5,511 new cases that were reported on Wednesday.The district recently created a task force and also distributed a survey to parents, in an effort to determine options for reopening safely in the fall.In addition, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued a series of recommendations for schools, in order to reduce the spread of the virus. The agency noted the risk of the virus spreading increases in these situations:-Lowest Risk: Students and teachers engage in virtual-only classes, activities, and events.-More Risk: Small, in-person classes, activities, and events. Groups of students stay together and with the same teacher throughout/across school days and groups do not mix. Students remain at least 6 feet apart and do not share objects (e.g., hybrid virtual and in-person class structures, or staggered/rotated scheduling to accommodate smaller class sizes).-Highest Risk: Full sized, in-person classes, activities, and events. Students are not spaced apart, share classroom materials or supplies, and mix between classes and activities.The district is also considering three education options for when students return: full-time classroom instruction, full-time distance learning, or a hybrid model that would involve students being in the classroom two days a week and then at home for distance learning the other three days a week.Superintendent of Schools Dr. Donald Fennoy says more than 66,000 parents and guardians responded to the district survey asking them which of the three learning models they prefer.“Right now, a district data team is analyzing all those results,” Dr. Fennoy told board members. “Generally, the respondents were fairly evenly split in their back to school preferences when asked about returning to school full-time, continuing distance learning full-time, or some form of a blended model.”Officials are expected to make a final decision on the format of the 2020/21 school year on July 15.Wednesday’s discussion is a virtual meeting.
