Did You Feel Either of the Two Earthquakes Yesterday?

There were two earthquakes yesterday, 26 January 2015, at 1:29 and 1:57, 2.3 miles Northwest of Galena High School. They measured 2.3 and 2.9 magnitude respectively (as reported by the Reno Gazette Journal today). That puts the epicenter about 100 yards west of the Fire station at Arrow Creek Parkway and Thomas Creek Road.

We know this area is an active seismologic zone, as the National Geophysical Laboratory has installed monitoring systems just outside of our ArrowCreek neighborhood on the north western boundary.

    Ahhh, the ‘FACT’ that we live on the shoulder of an ancient volcano may have something to do with it as well.

    Some geologists have compared watering a large expanse of desert, after conversion to a golf course, as a type of hydraulic fracturing. The strata, which have been dry for decades, become waterlogged.

    Something has to give, stress leads to earthquakes

    I have never felt shakes below about 3.5 and having lived for 50+ years in SoCal, I find it silly to call these small events earthquakes.


    • Small, true. . . Could call them rattlers but then we might be misunderstood there, as well, for talking about snakes. . . and not everyone is from California! Sometimes that is hard to believe, but it is very true! 🙂


  4. I did feel the one at 1:57 p.m.!! It shook our china cabinet! It was a small earthquake, so nothing was out of place.
