No problem...

I feel like a really huge quaketard,
But this swarm is the strongest Nevada has had that I
can remember. Can't help but be fascinated by it.

So...

Today's quakes so far....(next post)

Nice link....there's a cool little animated graphic at the
Article that shows a time lapse of the swarm.

Hey hey Nika. hi

I was going to say it really slowed down this evening.
Just had a 2.5, first in a few hours.

A couple of 3.2's earlier this evening.
Let's see what this swarm does tonight.

Always more active at night it seems.

This is a bit strange for the area? I'm still wondering about the pipeline.

Well the quakes are new to this area.
But not surprising as there are faults all over Nevada.

If I can remember right, I think I first saw them start to pop
Up late last year. And then this swarm picked up in July.

What are you thinking about the pipeline?

chuckle you want it to be, don't you?

It is curious that Lassen Peak is also starting
It's own little swarm. Definitely a lot of activity on the
Border between Nevada and California.

Re: EQ swarm going on in Northern Nevada near Oregon, including a couple around 4.7
Here is a quote I trust for you. The Geologists Haven't a clue themselves.

The Great Basin holds underground water, which does not drain to the Pacific but seeps underground. It is subject to mountain building, being on the western slope of the Continental Divide. Quake swarms occur most often in regions where there is underground water, which gets trapped and then later released as the rock layers slide during either stretch activity or mountain building activity. The water is essentially sloshing around underground, each time causing a minor quake. At times such activity will cause new lakes to form suddenly on the surface, or drain an existing lake. This is a factor of the N American bow, and the mountain building ongoing in the area, not magma movement.

This is what the seismologist are saying.
That water is basically percolating up through the rock.

I was reading a little the other night about Nevada's EQ history
And found this fascinating story the Indians told of water shooting
Up a 100 feet in the air from a great quake at Pyramid Lake.

It was in a newspaper from 1865.

Very good. Well my post confirms no volcanoes at the moment. Just a lot of pressure from the west heading east. Rip there goes the New Meridian fault. Very weak spot subject to great releases of pressure from all around the American plate.

A visit to Nevada's earthquake swarm.

Not too thrilling, but a good look at the area and
How remote it is. Must be so peaceful to be the only
Soul out there....nobody around for over 60 miles or more.

One more reason to love Nevada.



Thanks to whoever this guy is for going out there.
