Holy Crap!:shock: Folks, we've had 20, yes I said 20 earthquakes here in Reno in one hour! We're fine and nobody was hurt and just minor damage closer to the epicenter. Everybody else in Reno ok?
All were centered just 4 milesWNW from our apt in Mogul, NV. On April 15th we had a swarm of about 12 and the largest a 3.6 woke me from my sleep. I felt 4 that day.
But today took the cake with the largest being 4.2, 4.1 and a 3.0! My wife felt the 4.2 and 4.1 as they shook the hospital where she works almost 10 miles to theeast! These were felt all the way to Virginia City and over to Lake Tahoe. W felt another just a short while ago.
They're saying it's a new fault, but we all know that it's really LEO229's fault!
For those that don't know, each .1 is twice the force so the 4.2 was double the strength of the 4.1 and believe me, the 4.1 was a winner! You get off a place or boat and are thankful you're on solid ground. But if you've never experieced an earthquake, all bets are off when the ground under your feet is moving, everything is rattling the ground itself is groaning!
Here's a couple maps of our activity:
(my apt is so close it's on that map!)
From this page you can download a file from the USGS that will map earthquakes right into your Google Earth! It takes about 10 mins form the quake unti it updates on the map:
Bottled water and extra ammo is in the car just in case.
