On the border of Nevada and California earthquake by force 6,5 points

According to the U.S. Geological survey (USGS), in a remote part of Western Nevada early Friday morning, may 15, occurred an earthquake measuring 6.5 points.

The earthquake occurred at 4:03 am about 130 miles Southeast of Reno and 60 miles East of Mono lake — about halfway between Las Vegas and Reno, near the California border.

According to the USGS, tremors were at a depth of 4.7 miles. Re-push force 4.6 points occurred in the same area at approximately 14 minutes after the first strike. This was followed by aftershocks with a strength of 4.9 and 5.1 points.

During the first hour after the main shock, there were more than a dozen aftershocks.

Fortunately, the likelihood that this will be followed by another earthquake of magnitude 6 points or higher is 4%. According to the USGS, the probability of an earthquake of magnitude 7 or higher is 1 to 200.

According to reports in social networks, the earthquake was felt in the area surrounding Reno, Las Vegas and the Eastern Sierras and in the mountains in Fresno and Bakersfield, and even in the Bay area San Francisco (California). Information on casualties or damage yet.
