6.4 Nevada!

Quote:Major Historical Earthquakes in Nevada

Twenty-three earthquakes of magnitude 6 or greater have struck Nevada since the 1840s. Some were isolated events and some occurred close in time, the extreme being the 1954 magnitude 7.1 Fairview Peak earthquake followed four minutes and 20 seconds later by the magnitude 6.9 Dixie Valley earthquake.
The earliest reported earthquakes are anecdotal in nature and we don’t know exact dates or locations of these events. There are stories of an earthquake occurring during the 1840s in the Winnemucca region and again in 1852 near Pyramid Lake, but we have not been able to learn more about these events other than the original stories.
During the period of 1855 to 1869, the region around Reno was rocked with six earthquakes with magnitudes ranging from 6 to 6.4. The first of these was a magnitude 6 earthquake near Sierraville, California. Two years later in 1857 a magnitude 6.3 earthquake occurred just north of Lake Tahoe. The effects of this earthquake in Nevada are not known, but it was documented in felt reports and
damage in the Sierra Nevada gold camps. Three years later, a magnitude 6.5 rocked western Nevada and eastern California on March 15, 1860. This earthquake severely shook the Carson City area, throwing goods from shelves, and causing people to run out of buildings and a few minutes of panic. People also ran out of buildings as far away as Sacramento, California. Rockfalls and possible aftershocks were noted in the Pyramid Lake area, indicating where the earthquake may have originated. The 1868 and 1869 earthquakes were located in the Reno-Virginia City area. On May 30, 1868, two similar sized events about 10 minutes apart shook western Nevada around 9:20 p.m. on a Friday night. The best estimate is that the first event was a magnitude 6 earthquake and the second event had a slightly smaller magnitude. This event strongly shook western Nevada, rattling dishes, windows, and nerves, knocked down plaster and cracked brick walls, but did not cause serious damage. The 1868 and 1869 earthquakes may have originated in the Virginia Range or Steamboat Springs where
the effects were most pronounced. Following the 1868 earthquake, Steamboat Springs erupted hot mud instead of hot water and at least one strong aftershock was felt at Steamboat Springs that wasn’t felt in Virginia City. The December 1869 earthquake sequence included two major earthquakes of magnitude 6.4 and 6.2 occurring about eight hours apart on the night of Dec. 26th and morning of the 27th. The first event occurred at about 6 p.m. on a Sunday night. People rushed to the streets in Virginia City and Gold Hill, and many walked the streets all night, afraid to go to bed. The second event occurred between 2:00 and 3:20 a.m. and several accounts believe it was as severe as the first event. These earthquakes caused serious damage to masonry walls, cracked and dropped plaster, and tossed goods from shelves in Virginia City, Steamboat Springs, and Washoe Valley.
A magnitude 6(?) earthquake occurred in central Nevada on November 12, 1872, and caused panic and minor damage in Austin. Very little is known about this earthquake except that it was a sharp shock in Austin; best estimates place its origin
to the south of Austin. This event was part of period of earthquake activity in the Austin and Eureka region that lasted from 1868 to 1894.
On June 3, 1887, a violent earthquake damaged Carson City, Genoa, and other settlements in Carson Valley and eastern Lake Tahoe. The earthquake occurred at about 2:40 in the morning. It began with a heavy rumbling sound and only lasted 3 to 10 seconds, but was strong enough to throw some people in Carson City to the ground. People immediately exited buildings in the sleeping garments in Carson City, Genoa, and Virginia City. Miners coming into town could see the buildings of Virginia City vibrating, and noted when looking at the moon that “the vibrations were clearly visible to the organ of sight as was to the sense of feeling.” People generally spent the rest of the morning outside until dawn brought the promise of another day. Several Carson City and Genoa buildings were damaged so severely from the earthquake that they had to be partially torn down and rebuilt. The Rosser Building in Carson City had severely cracked east-west walls and two-inch wide cracks where these joined with the north south walls. Many buildings in Carson City were cracked and had plaster thrown down, including the state capitol building, which had plaster down in the Supreme
Court Room, the Senate Chamber, and the Governor’s Office, as well as a half-inch wide crack in the west wall. In Carson Valley, the shaking was so strong that near surface sediments liquefied, or behaved like a fluid. This was evidenced by the formation of sand-bearing water spouts, ground fissures, shattered ground, and ground that sounded hollow to walk over because some sediment underneath had flowed
away.

I was close enough to get a pretty good shaking from this one. Not much to report as I haven't walked the property or talked to anyone yet....but it woke me in the wee hours.

FYI

The Tonopah Test Range (TTR) is a restricted military installation located about 30 miles (48 km) southeast of Tonopah, Nevada. It is part of the northern fringe of the Nellis Range, measuring 625 sq mi (1,620 km2). Tonopah Test Range is located about 70 miles (110 km) northwest of Groom Dry Lake, the home of the Area 51 facility. Like the Groom Lake facility, Tonopah is a site of interest to conspiracy theorists, mostly for its use of experimental and classified aircraft. As such, it is not generally the focus of alien enthusiasts, unlike its neighbor. It is currently used for nuclear weapons stockpile reliability testing, research and development of fusing and firing systems, and testing nuclear weapon delivery systems.[2] The airspace comprises restricted area R-4809 of the Nevada Test and Training Range and is often used for military training.

Bet we tested a nuke to send a message to China.
