Reno Nevada area rocked by earthquakes

The AP reports that the area around Reno, which the Lincoln Highway traverses in western Nevada, has been hit by two moderate earthquakes:

The Seismology Laboratory at the University of Nevada, Reno, says a magnitude 4.2 tremor shook the city early Monday and has been followed by at least a dozen aftershocks….

It’s the latest in a two-month swarm of earthquakes that started in February, and scientists say this is unusual because the tremors are getting stronger, instead of weaker.

The strongest shock so far was a magnitude 4.7 quake that shook cans off shelves on Friday.

  1. Yes, it is getting scary, since big quakes east of the rockies are starting to increase also, maybe there are some big changes coming to America.
