The University of Nevada Seismological Lab says there was a swarm of small earthquakes north of Reno Sunday morning.
Officials say there were 17 earthquakes centered in an area about two miles east of Sun Valley, beginning Sunday at 12:25 a.m. The largest quake registered at a 1.7-magnitude around 3 a.m.
There was no reports of damage. The Seismological Lab says earthquakes of this size are usually too small to be felt.
In an announcement on its website, the Seismological Lab says: "With the occurrence of earthquake swarms there is a small increase in the likelihood of larger potentially damaging events. The Nevada-eastern California has a history of large earthquakes and citizens should always consider taking steps to prepare for potentially damaging earthquake ground shaking. Earthquakes are unpredictable and can occur at any time."
