Don't see this kind of "medium/medium Large quake action all the time, I know that there are always small ones, Earthquake swarms have kinda been scary these days in other parts of the world, earthquake swarms that are 4 and larger should be a concern to those people.

Just now 3.8. ..2nd jolt in less than an hour.

Ahh earthquake threads. There's no right or wrong in 'em, they're just there.

Nothing but good old mother earth letting off some pressure. Its natural, nothing to worry about imo.

What's interesting about this Nevada swarm of quakes is if you go to this thread you'll find some posters that drew a straight line through the Santa Cruz quakes and it carries up through Hawaii... and if you keep going straight with that line, you end up at the exact location of these Nevada quakes.

Something interesting is definitely happening with these plates ?

The largest Nevada quake in history:

1915
Magnitude 7.1

This earthquake occurred along a fault on the eastern side of Pleasant Valley, which lies about 64 kilometers southeast of Winnemucca, in the north-central part of Nevada. The epicentral region was almost uninhabited, and, therefore, property damage was less than might have been expected. At Kennedy, two adobe houses were destroyed, mine tunnels collapsed, and concrete mine foundations were cracked. At Winnemucca, adobe buildings generally were damaged, and several multistory brick buildings lost their coping and parts of upper walls; many chimneys were demolished above the rooflines. In addition, water tanks were thrown down at Battle Mountain, Kodiak, Lovelock, and Parran.

One of the most striking effects of this earthquake was the large increase (and decrease) in the flow of springs and streams throughout northern Nevada. Cracks formed in unconsolidated materials for considerable distances. Felt from the State of Oregon to southern California and from the Pacific coast to beyond Salt Lake City, Utah. Two foreshocks and many aftershocks occurred.

It has been years since the last large earthquake in Nevada (1954), and many Nevadans don't appreciate how high the earthquake potential is. We cannot prevent earthquakes but many steps can be taken to minimize or eliminate the potential hazards of earthquakes. Mitigation measures include building with sound lateral or shear support, anchoring objects inside a home that might topple or fall and injure someone, and being prepared to respond to an earthquake, no matter where you are.

Gotta love these NV earthquakes that none of us Nevadans ever seem to feel. When it's the big one...I'll be the first one on here to let y'all know about it.

This is not unusual for us.
