    Earthquake! Reno, NV

    Has any one heard about the earthquakes they keep having there?


    The news just said they had a 5.0 Earth quake a little bit ago.

    Sad Re: Earthquake! Reno, NV

    Heard about it I felt it and the after shocks!

    I've felt plenty of earthquakes in my day but this one was bad. It seemed to last 15 seconds or more and scared the *!$#!! out of me. I was sitting here reading my Micechat and all of the sudden it started. I live in the flight path for the airport and thought a plane was lower than normal. It sounded like a military cargo plane. I ran and stood in my doorway until it stopped. When they first came on with the news they reported it as a 4.9. Now they just said on the news that there were 3 and they were 3.5, 3.7 and 3.0. I'm not sure if I believe that because of the ones yesterday that were 3.5 and they weren't as bad as the ones tonight.

    Time for a glass of wine to calm my nerves!

    Now they are saying it was 4.7 and people are reporting cracks in their homes, pictures off the wall, things off shelves in their homes. That's the latest report at 1am.

    i'm at work at St. Marys hospital here in Reno on the 4th floor and we really felt it too, we staff stood in the doorways until the shaking was over...and yeah it was a good 15 seconds!...then went and check all out patients. Everyone is safe and fine here, just a lot of people on edge from the rolling our building does after the inital quake is over.

    we've also felt the aftershocks pretty good too. My friend lives closer to the Verdi/Mogul area and her roommate said the TV fell over and just about everything flew out of their kitchen cabinets and medicine cabinets in the bathroom, but no physical damage that he can see


    pretty crazy stuff, we've been having a lot of quakes lately..its almost like i still live in socal

    Re: Earthquake! Reno, NV

    the USGS earthquake site is showing that there was a 3.3 followed 11seconds later by a 4.7, which is probably why it felt so much stronger than the ratings are showing.

    we've had several after shocks, a few of them greater than 3.0. Needless to say, we've spent quite a bit of hte night trying to calm our patients nerves as well as our own!

    Rookies!

    Seriously... glad you are all okay, except for your nerves! For those who aren't used to it, and even for some of of us who are, a 5 can be a biggie!

    Nah. The biggie will be hitting Southern California along the San Andreas. We'll be feeling that one, I'm sure.

    I'm used to them from living in CA but I've never felt one like the one last night. It seemed like it was never going to stop.

    Hope everyone is okay! I live in Seattle and we had a pretty good sized one up here a few years ago and it was my first earthquake (having grown up in AZ). They do set the nerves on edge for a while afterward!

    I Heart Disneyland - please put a break in between the photos in your sig somewhere. Over 1,000 pixels wide is excessive by most forum standards. For those of us without 24" widescreen monitors - it blows out the side of the forums.

    must be that time of the year since the new madrid fault has been acting up as well.
    The fountain of youth really is in Florida... thats why they built Walt Disney World where they did.

    You could have asked me in a PM. That would have been a nice gesture on your part Sambo.
