Mt. Caetano Feb. 7, 2008 -- The fault-riddled landscape of northern Nevada has sliced and diced the remains of one of the world's largest volcanoes, providing a rare chance to inspect the innards of the so-called "supervolcano."
The Caetano caldera was a 12-mile-wide crater after it erupted 33.8 million years ago and sent a catastrophic ejection of more than 270 cubic miles of molten, lathered rock into the air.
"This is an eruption very much on the scale as the Yellowstone eruption," said caldera volcano expert Peter Lipman of the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS).....cont'd
It would be interesting to see if any locals in the region of the "officially non existent" NV tremor actually reported feeling anything. I assume a low mag 4 could be noticed by some people.
And I'd still like to know why the earthquake I felt here in Reno last month at 10:45 p.m. was never listed on any USGS maps. It was at least a 3.5 magnitude if it was on the Mogul fault. A friend told me it was mentioned on local news the next morning... still, as far as USGS was concerned, it never happened. At least not in Reno. Maybe it was "moved" away from here. Who knows?
Also, I noticed the house creaking and popping a lot in the past 24 hours.
