Well, my answer to that is I don't mind the stars, flags, or scaring the crap out of someone if it potentially can save their life. I believe that we all have choices in life. And a key one is where to live, in the sense of the broader environment around us.
Largest earthquake M4.6 confirmed in Hawthorne sequence, 4/16/2011
Significant activity is occurring in an ongoing earthquake swarm southwest of Hawthorne Saturday afternoon.
An uptick in seismic activity is being recorded by the Nevada Seismological Laboratory on Saturday afternoon with the largest earthquakes of the sequence, M4.6 and 4.1, occurring at 5:45 and 5:55 PM PST. These two earthquakes are part of a larger swarm of at least 20 earthquakes over a couple hour time period.

That's part of it, but they are now coming in fast and furious. I can be here another ten or fifteen minutes, then I'm off until later this afternoon. GEE users, use network NN, and set to Extremely Short Period (EHZ).

I know it's a little late in the game, but I don't see the NN network... it doesn't even show up in the station select window.
LONG VALLEY OBSERVATORY WEEKLY UPDATE
Friday, April 22, 2011 12:29 PM PDT (Friday, April 22, 2011 19:29 UTC)
LONG VALLEY VOLCANIC CENTER VOLCANO (CAVW #1203-14-)
37°42' N 118°52'12" W, Summit Elevation 7231 ft (2204 m)
Current Volcano Alert Level: NORMAL
Current Aviation Color Code: GREEN
Nine small earthquakes between magnitude M=1.0 and M=2.9 occurred in the Mammoth Lakes-Long Valley caldera region since the last update on April 15, 2011. All of these events occurred in the Sierra Nevada south of the caldera. The automatic earthquake detection system also located a handful of events in the Mono Lake area, including a magnitude M=2.0 about 13 km (8 miles) north of Lee Vining and a cluster of about ten earthquakes on the east shore of Mono Lake, the largest of which had a magnitude of M=2.4. Elsewhere in the region, just over the border to the northeast between Mono Lake and the town of Hawthorne, Nevada, an energetic swarm of earthquakes that started on Sunday, April 10 continues. Over twenty-five earthquakes have been detected in the magnitude M=3.0 range and nine between magnitude M=4.0 and M=4.6. Mild shaking from the larger of these events may have been felt in Bridgeport, CA. The Nevada swarm is non-volcanic in origin.

Well, guess that settles it. So the answer to this thread's question is no according to the USGS. Ok, so if not volcanic, then probably a fault rupture? I like the way they state what it isn't but don't state what it IS.

Oh but wait... Kro32 should be showing up soon to state what it is and what it is not. Without posting any links, studies, articles, or even his degree, to prove whatever it is or is not, to us all.
