Was reading about the 3.1 you had and they don't seem to care or be concerned from what I am reading """hmmmmm"""
This earthquake caused very strong shaking in Carson Valley. At Genoa, houses were shifted off their foundations and bricks were thrown down (Territorial Enterprise, 6/4/1887). At Carson City, chimneys were damaged, brick and stone walls were damaged, and plaster fell. At the State Capitol, the west wall was cracked and plaster fell in several rooms (Territorial Enterprise, 6/4/1887). Some people who were in the streets of Carson City that morning (the earthquake occurred at ~2:45 a.m.) were apparently thrown to the ground by the shock (Territorial Enterprise, 6/4/1887). At Mound House, a hotel and wayside resort was totally destroyed by a fire on the day following the earthquake; the earthquake had separated several joints in the stove pipe and when the stove was lit the morning of the 4th, fire leapt out of the break in the pipe and ignited the wood backing (Carson Daily Index, 6/5/1887). Near Cradlebaugh's Bridge, south of Carson City, a fissure 15 m (50 ft) long opened up and mud and hot water spouted for a half an hour without abating (Reno Gazette-Journal, 10/28/1979). Springs all around Carson City either increased in flow or went suddenly dry. General alarm occurred in Virginia City and Reno, but there was little damage. The earthquake appears to have occurred in Carson Valley. [MTO 6.3]

Also wanted to mention, I suppose from now on, any time we see an EQ, especially out west, on the USGS maps, we should take a screen shot just in case.
