4.0 and 3.6 Quakes Near NV-CA Line West of Tonopah

Posted: Updated:

A magnitude 4.0 earthquake struck in a part of west-central Nevada near the California line that has been shaking for some time now.

The latest temblor was recorded at 7:29 a.m. Thursday southeast of Hawthorne and northwest of Tonopah, about 25 miles south of Mina near the intersections of U.S. Highway 95 and 6.

The Mineral County Sheriff's reports no damage.

The Nevada Seismological Laboratory says it is was an aftershock from a 5.1 quake that hit in the same area on Feb. 12. It's in almost the identical spot as a 3.5 magnitude quake recorded on Sunday near Coldale Junction.

Over the past week, dozens of tiny earthquakes less than 2.0 have been recorded in that seismically-active region southeast of Yosemite National Park and north of Bishop, California.

Updated information for activity associated with this earthquake is available at http://www.seismo.unr.edu.

The Nevada-Eastern California region has a history of large damaging earthquakes and citizens should always consider earthquake preparedness. Information is available at www.readywashoe.com.

The Nevada Seismological Laboratory, a research and public service department at the University of Nevada, Reno, is a member of the USGS Advanced National Seismic System (http://www.anss.org) and operates a network of about 150 real-time seismograph stations throughout the region providing earthquake information to the USGS, Nevada citizens, and local and state officials.
