I know right! Just booked a trip to Vegas too.

ETA: Looks like 3 1/2 hours or so?? I map quested it.

Also, this is the only news I have seen so far.

LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – A strong Nevada earthquake today 2013 has been felt in California. The Nevada earthquake today erupted twenty minutes ago. No reports of injuries have yet to be detailed by local news. Officials tell news that a 4.9 magnitude Nevada earthquake today started at 4:10 pm PST today. The quake however had virtually no depth, erupting close to ground level. USGS indicates to news that the quake was only centered six miles below the ground. As a result the quake could be felt across the vicinity in Nevada. USGS indicates to news that the Nevada earthquake today began seventeen miles south of Tonopah Junction, Nevada and twenty-seven miles west of Weepah. The quake was also thirty-three miles east of Qualeys Camps, officials tell news. The temblor started roughly one hundred eighty miles east of Sacramento. Moments later, a second quake struck the same area. USGS indicates to news that seven minutes later an aftershock erupted with reported a 3.1 magnitude. The same area was the location of a comparable quake last September 27. That quake was twenty-nine miles southwest of the Nevada town of Tokop. Officials also reported at the time that September quake was centered thirty miles from Nevada community of Beatty and one hundred thirty miles from Las Vegas. The quake was also centered fifty-five miles northeast of the California town of Olancha.

Also this...

MINA, Nev. - The Nevada Seismological Laboratory is reporting a 5.2 magnitude earthquake about 24 miles south of Mina. They report the earthquake hit at 4:10pm Tuesday. So far, there have been no reports of damage or injuries. The shaking was felt at the Hard'Rock Market in Mina. The owner tells KOLO 8 News Now she felt the shaking last for about 3-4 seconds, but nothing fell off her shelves. Calls to the Mizpah Hotel in Tonopah indicate people felt a small shake, but nothing to cause concern.

Doesn't look to be bad... think its a small town.

Is South Sandwich Island about to blow??

I can't remember if it was me or not MamaJ.

Probably was though, I'm always worried about the Golden State and posting about tiny swarms.

Here is a quick pic of the action as picked up by MCD.NC, just north of Bishop, CA.


Someone up above mentioned this being connected to Long Valley--my gut says no. I think it is more likely another accomodation for lack of movement on the San Andreas.

Hot off NIED, (Japan) well 3rd to last entry, and when they have a quake every 5 minutes thats pretty fresh
2013-02-13 12:57:44.208, 30.2392, 131.6400, 24.4, 5.2
ach! I see GFZ and USGS already have it
south of Kyushu
so do JMA, 5.1

sorry just got in, first one I seen.

one off Honshu too
2013-02-13 11:21:36.245, 38.4261, 141.9064, 54.8 0.3 5.2 (NIED)

Did anyone else notice that Japan & Nevada are the primary players tonight?
And the swarm in Nevada & Honshu are both 38* Latitude?
And activity in Japan is increasing tonight?



Oops!!! Did WOQ notice that Muzzy already saw Japan???

reply to post by wasobservingquietly

no worries, I only posted them because no one else had.
I'm sure most people that come here seen them on USGS,EMSC or GFZ anyway before I got here..
I have a routine
LISS NZSO to see whats been happening (big-uns)
GFZ to see whta/where it was if there IS something showing on LISS SNZO
Geonet to see if there are any Red bands on a quick swoop down the page (significant quakes in NZ that the Global Networks might not list)
NIED check the most recent Japan quakes.

I didn't even see the Nevada quake until I read ATS QW2013, I rarely go to USGS now unless I want a comparison on something GFZ has.
That would be the biggest quake in a while on land in the USA no?

I check this for EQs in Japan There`s a phone app too

Largest quakes by state:

Oklahoma: 11/6/11- 5.6.
But that doesn't even list the 5.8 in Virginia on 8/23/11.
So I don't know how accurate it is!
It seems there's something gnawing at the back of my mind.
Something in 2012. But it's 3 AM here & I'm fading fast!
I'll bet Eric would know!

49 quakes currently on the 13th in Nevada swarm.

A 3.9 just hit in Nevada. Biggest so far in this swarm right? Hopefully that was the big one.

Not sure which quake you are referring to but if it is near Tonopah, NV then it is most likely an after-shock of the 5.1 quake from yesterday.

Oh wow I missed that one. Guess its an aftershock then, good. Thanks

I agree.

I just spent several hours (3) trying to get my database to do circular searches because I was sure that we had seen activity in this area before, yet the circular search on USGS produced very little. I now have it working.

From 2009 to 2012

Date/Time UTC,Latitude,Longitude,Magnitude,Depth(Km),Location, distance from 38,-118

Continued in next post as too little space

continuation to post by PuterMan

can't add the list because of the restrictions. Anyway there were quite a few but all around 17 km distant so not quite the same location.

OK I put those and the current ones on a page here

Where as the current ones are about 4 to 7 km from 38,-118 the earlier (January) ones were 15 to 18 from that point.

So it does appear there is/was a swarm. Can we expect anything bigger then? Also, anyone paying attention to Mammoth Mountain? I wonder if this will kick off volcanic activity.

Just looked at quake activity and seems as if Santa Cruz is shaking.... three almost back to back 5.2's.

There is a new thread whereas the poster got info off Extinction Protocol regarding the super volcanoes growing in the South Pacific near the quakes in Santa Cruz??

This blurb is from a link on the front page of the Nevada Seismo Lab (that I can't seem to link directly)

The earthquake took place within the Walker Lane Belt of western Nevada in a tectonic region termed the Mina Deflection. This area is area characterized by NE to EW striking left-lateral strike slip faults. Two Magnitude 5+ earthquakes in 2004 occurred about 30 miles west of todays event.

Here is a fairly close-in map of the area with the faults labeled. The current activity is just under, and to the right of the fault labeled "CF" (Coaldale Fault).


And another, for reference. source

After a quick search, it looks like there is a fair amount of study on this area. Researchers are trying to see how stress is transferred from the ECSZ (Eastern California Shear Zone) in the south, thru the Mina Deflection, into the WL (Walker Lane) to the north--if I've digested my reading properly.

I thought it was you as well. I went back some pages and found this poster commenting on it.

Im curious as to whether or not it will shake another area up such as the San Andreas or another area.

Its not volcanic however it may set one off??

Could Nevada see a bigger one?

I don't think it will trigger the San Andreas directly. From what I understand, this area helps accomodate the huge North-East push the Pacific plate is exerting on the San Andreas fault--which is currently stuck. But at some point there will be some give.

I don't know enough about volcanism to say whether it could set one off, or not.

Nevada has had bigger quakes in the past-- mag 7.1/7.2. Historical Nevada Quakes

brand new to this site this a.m. so apologies if this query has been asked and answered: are there fracking wells in the 'area'? am searching for source data now but haven't come up with answer yet. thanks-
