Quake swarm in RENO

South Reno has been shaking, ever so gently, for six days now.

Galena High School or where the Mount Rose Highway goes below the I-580 — you likely haven’t felt much, if anything. But earthquake detecting instruments in the area have picked up more than 230 small temblors since late last Thursday.

The largest in the swarm so far, which hit Tuesday afternoon, measured a 2.7 on the Richter scale — a magnitude that University of Nevada, Reno seismologist Ken Smith described as “pretty small.”

“You’d have to be right above it to really feel anything,” he said, noting they’ve gotten a few dozen reports from people who’ve felt the jolts.

And recall late in 17 and early 18, predictions were made that 2018 would be the year of the megaquake.

Shaking begins.

In time for the local news.
