Just felt one of those earthquakes everybody’s been talking about. It’s the first one of this swarm that I’ve actually felt. It wasn’t a big jolt, but enough to definitely let you know you were rocking and rolling. If I felt it that much in Carson City, it must have been quite a bit stronger in Reno. I’ll have to find out what strength this one was.
Update: It was a magnitude 3.2, according to USGS. Weird that it was followed by a 3.0 just a couple of minutes later, and I didn’t feel that one. Especially because I was still paranoid and waiting for another one.
Update: So I guess one thing about the USGS earthquake reports is that it takes them a few hours to dial them in. So while the website was only reporting a couple of magnitude 3 quakes last night, I wake up this morning to find a relatively beefy 4.7 squeezed in the middle there.
This is the biggest one yet out of this swarm. And the people in Reno sure felt it, a lot more than we did in Carson.
