Foreclosures: Surveying the Post-Apocalypse Landscape In Northeast Ohio, the epicenter of the foreclosure crisis that hit its stride in 2008, the number of foreclosures has finally leveled off. Still, though, banks foreclose on more than 600 properties every month in Cuyahoga County alone. Some would say that's still a crisis. Tomorrow morning at 9:00 on the Sound of Ideas, host Mike McIntyre asks why foreclosure still happens despite tighter lending restrictions, what impact it has on neighborhoods and prevention efforts.
