Two Magnitude 5.7 Earthquakes Strike Western Nevada, Felt over a Wide Region
I will post the record of the quake as recorded from MJC if the seismometer stayed on during the Christmas break (power outages and that sort of thing can screw things up). I'll update the numbers here in the morning, if they change. Technical details are available at http://scedc.caltech.edu/recent/Maps/119-38.html, http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/eventpage/nn00570710#executive and at http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/eventpage/nn00570709#executive.
First update:Quite a few aftershocks as of 1:30 AM, magnitudes 5.6, 4.0,3.9, 3.8, 3.6, and 3.0.
Second update: As of 10 AM, around 150 aftershocks, including a 4.1 and five mag. 3 events.
