Ah my pain meds are making me dumb. I forgot that Yellowstone was its own hot spot with lava coming from deep below. Thats a pretty cool animation, Thanks.

Why don't you pitch a tent in the yard with the dogs and get some sleep that way? Odds are the quake will not bring down the house in the time it would take for you to get out.


Yes, I did put up the tent and spent an uncomfortable sort of cold night out there the night after the 5.0. Then I had the same thought you did-- odds are the quake will not bring down the house in the time it would take me to get out. You want to see some Olympic running and jumping.... The upside of the tent is you don't have to lay awake listening to every creak the house makes. I noticed this morning that my neighbors have also put up their family camping tent in their backyard.

So far the seismologists all say they are baffled, that this quake swarm is strange and they don't know what's going on. It's not very comforting. But I will keep an eye out for a volcano rising from my back garden.

Checking in on behalf of Mooschka the Magnificent (thats the Black cat of mine)

At about 7:59 Pacific..He stood in the same place as the other night.
Looked at me and my wife..Rolled on his back, the bolted for the front door.
Pawing at the door, until I let him out...So there it is..

Let see what happens..

It's a couple of hours later, and no reports of activity..I guess he has to meow and shake his head for it to count.

Heya Kattraxx!

From Nevada Seismo Lab


*There is no chance that these earthquakes are related to volcanic activities. Depth of earthquakes are around 1 to 3-mile deep. It is too shallow for magma movement.


I wonder why they felt the need to put that information up?
WE do have a lot of Geothermal power generated around here, So there are some thermal exchanges near the surface.

here is the link to the lab.

Hang in there friend, You're going to get through this. Get some rest.

This is nuts.

My first vivist to the earhquake watch thread...

What is going on with these frequent, continuous quakes??

The farther i go back in this thread - the more disturbed i become!!

I don't know if you noticed, but they also have put the readouts on that page as well:
www.seismo.unr.edu...

And they are probably right, but one still wonders why so many in the same place.

I was just kidding about the volcano rising in my back garden.
You're right-- I think I heard that we lead the nation in geothermal power in this state. It would be nice if the "experts" could tell us anything definite. I notice on the News now, they don't say "if" the big one hits, they say "when". Edit to add: Re: volcano info... I heard on the local news that a lot of people have been phoning in asking if this quake swarm may be related to a volcano in some way. Maybe that's why they felt the need to say something.

What is strange to me is that I can feel a vibration just about constantly when I'm sitting still. I've never experienced this before.

Last night, just as I was dozing off, my Siberian jumped on my bed and pawed my arm, and my other dog came to the side of my bed. I looked at them both and got up and let them outside. Five minutes later, at 11 p.m., one hit, about a 3.0 or so; I haven't checked it yet.

I woke with that headache again, but it's backed off some. Do you notice any "seismic flu" symptoms? Headache, body aches, brain fog, etc.?

I take it your cat hasn't returned home yet.

Im just greatful...for now that is...that they arent going full blast with the Tesla and other worldly technologies just yet.



Im just greatful I still have no ATS points...im sure banning is just around the corner

To shallow for magma movement? That person who wrote that must be a close friend of President Bush who has a history of raising horses. What a jackass statement.

I want to say something reassuring, but to point out on the reliability of predictions front:

1. St Helens; everyone except the volcanologist who was killed by it thought it would erupt vertically, not horizontally.

2. Galeras; they looked at one thing and said it wouldn't erupt, while a newer way of looking at it said it would. They went into the crater anyway and guess what happened.

3. Mount Unzen Japan where a rather large group of volcanologists were standing on a ridge that would supposedly be 'safe'. And it wasn't. One of them said the day before

I am never afraid because I have seen so much eruptions in 23 years that even if I die tomorrow, I don't care,


Course in terms of recently I can't think of many examples, so maybe they're getting better. Or there's just been less big ones.

Wow, i've been following this thread for a couple weeks now, and everything is just seeming so shocking to me. I hope, them getting bigger and what seems like deeper just does not add up well in my head. I felt i should add these comments to this thread

I live in northwest PA, and my dogs have been acting rather strangely lately themselves. for 2 days straight i noticed my dogs were going to sleep right outside my door, Which is ex termly odd since they never do that, they normally go upstairs and lay on there comfy doggy bed. this all started on the 25th of this month, and on the 27th i was like what the heck, you guys could just come in and sleep in the room. So for the past 2 night i have let them sleep with me, they seem to be "Needy of attention" constantly wiggling and groaning at me, like there trying to tell me something. And i cant help but wonder what is causing them to act this, perhaps a connection?


I hope all is well for those who are in areas of danger, And i hope soon you will be to sleep again, it must be completely draining on you who are experiencing this being in a constant state of limbo. i send my bests to you guys.

I hope the people at the USGS and FEMA are working hard on this and doing some much needed planning in case the big one hits.

The plates are definitely on the move and lets hope they do it in a nice slow fashion.

Maybe your dogs are picking up on the quakes in Tennessee, and Illinois.

That is a possibility, Exactly how odd are these earthquakes? that are occurring? earth changes seem to be happening so rapidly currently. or maybe its just because i have not paid attention to them before?

How Reno temblors will affect faults at Lake Tahoe unclear

Adam Jensen, ajensen@tahoedailytribune.com
April 29, 2008, 6:00 AM



As earthquakes continue to shake Reno, two reports released this month give new insight into the likely characteristics of a temblor at Lake Tahoe.

A 4.2-magnitude quake shook western Reno at 4:33 a.m. Monday, the latest in a series of quakes that has rocked the Mogul area since February.

Monday's quake is considered an aftershock of a 4.7-magnitude quake that hit the area Friday, after which seismologists warned there was a slightly higher probability of a larger quake.

"Following an earthquake of this size, there is a small increase in the probability of a larger-magnitude earthquake in the west Reno area," according to a statement from the Nevada Seismological Laboratory in Reno.

Earthquake activity is unpredictable and also could drop off, but scientists are watching the region closely.

"We're still in kind of a 72-hour window for something that will be bigger," said Diane dePolo, a network seismologist with the lab.

Whether the seismic activity west of Reno could stimulate movement along Lake Tahoe's three major fault lines is unknown.

"We don't have a magic crystal ball to see if something out here in Reno is going to affect something in Tahoe," dePolo said. "Anyone in this area, even up in Tahoe, should be prepared for an earthquake."

Earthquake preparedness tips
-- Make sure each member of your family knows what to do no matter where they are when earthquakes occur.

-- Know where your gas, electric and water-main shutoffs are, and how to turn them off if there is a leak or electrical short. Make sure older members of the family can shut off utilities.

-- Locate your nearest fire and police stations, and the emergency medical facility.

-- Talk to your neighbors about how could they help you, or you them, after an earthquake.

-- Secure household items that could cause injury if they fell during an earthquake.

-- Keep a disaster-preparedness kit including a fire extinguisher, adequate supplies of medications, a first-aid kit and handbook, flashlights with extra bulbs, portable radio, extra batteries, heavy-duty plastic bags, several days' worth of canned or packaged food, a can opener, two weeks' worth of water (allow at least 1 gallon per person per day), tablets or chlorine bleach for water purification, and a camp stove or barbecue grill.

The chance of a magnitude-6.7 or greater quake hitting the Tahoe Basin is relatively small, according to an interagency study known as the Uniform California Earthquake Rupture Forecast that was released this month. Maps from the study show the basin ringed primarily in yellow, indicating there is a 1 percent chance of a 6.7-magnitude or larger quake hitting the area in the next 30 years.

A small portion of the East Shore shows a 10 percent chance of an earthquake of magnitude 6.7 or greater in the next 30 years, and a section of the West Shore shows a 0.1 percent chance of an earthquake of the same size in the same time period, according to the map.

I'm sure there are people on here who have followed U.S. seismic activity who could tell you more about what's "normal" for your part of the country. I haven't been that in tune with it since I left the SF bay area and moved to Reno, NV. I'm pretty sure there are minor quakes in the 1.0 range just about everywhere now and then.

I've been keeping a close eye on my dogs' behavior the past couple weeks; they seem to hear things I can't hear as well. My Siberian stood out back last night after she insisted on going outside and gazed west/northwest towards the area of the Verdi/Mogul epicenter and tilted her head back and forth as if she was listening to something.

Anyone up here noticing the strange cloud formations we've been having? I wish I had the digital camera to take some pics to put up here, but my bf took it with him to AZ. He had to leave the morning after the 5.0 to go work out of state.
Two days ago, there were clouds I'd never seen before, one hanging almost vertically right over the Verdi/Mogul area. I took a pic with an instamatic I had handy. If it comes out, I'll put it up.

I for one, know i would be interesting in seeing those pictures, i hope they turned out well. I will also start paying attention to my animals and there actions. I think they can sense things we are unable to, and we should better get in tuned with what they are senseing

please do put it up. I'd be interested in seeing the cloud formations. I hope you and yours are doing ok. I noticed that reno just had another 2.9 so it isn't stopping yet. My heart goes out to those affected by these swarms of earthquakes.

Because I've been in one before I feel like I could handle more but just the fact that there is a swarm somewhat close to me I'm a bit nervous.

I told my husband last night that we need to finish stocking up our emergency rations of food and water and stuff for the kittens (they are our kids). Thankfully, nothing has trembled near portland in some time. THe last time I felt an earthquake was one that was actually up in seattle and was strong enough to shake portland 180 miles away. It felt like a boat ride, you couldn't walk and everything on the ceiling was swaying back and forth. It was very scary and very eerie.
