Earthquake Swarm on Fish Lake Valley Fault Zone in Nevada Prompts Fear About A Big One in Las Vegas (Video)

A swarm of 21 earthquakes is currently shaking the Fish Lake Valley Fault Zone near Goldfield in Nevada.

This earthquake series on the very active Fish Lake Valley – Furnace Creek – Death Valley fault system at the California-Nevada border could affect the Las Vegas and Clark County metro area, according to simulations.

The earthquake swarm has started on March 13, 2020, 12.39 p.m. local time (7:39 p.m. UTC) and ended March 13, 2020, 11.07 p.m. local time (6.07 a.m., March 14, 2020).

The strongest earthquakes of the series are:

Shakings from the M4.0 earthquake were reported by 8 people on the USGS homepage.

Big Earthquake in Las Vegas

The biggest potential problem for Southern Nevada are the faults near the California-Nevada border in Death Valley.

The Death Valley fault system at the California-Nevada border is composed of the very active Fish Lake Valley Fault Zone, Furnace Creek Fault Zone and Death Valley fault Fault Zone.

If they link together, it’s about a magnitude 7.8.

And oddly, if it ruptures from north to south, then it funnels a lot of energy into the Las Vegas basin in a way similar to Mexico City, which is not a good outcome.

As shown in the simulation below, if the combination of 3 magnitude 6.8 to 7.3 rips toward Las Vegas, then the cities will experience strong to severe seismic shaking, with light to heavy potential damage.

On the other hand, if the faults rip away from Las Vegas, the shaking would be light to moderate with little potential for damage.

Seismologists cannot predict which way it will rip, and exactly when it will happen.

But the community has to be ready.

If Earthquake Early Warning could be implemented for Las Vegas, there could be one whole minute of warning before the most dangerous shaking hits Las Vegas. That is enough time to take cover, and shut down any vulnerable systems.

These different earthquake scenarios for Las Vegas were computed by the Nevada ShakeZoning facility at the University of Nevada, Reno. More earthquake news on Strange Sounds and Steve Quayle.

  1. Well it is time for quakes major hit the from Vancouver BC to Sandi ego and San Madrid faults and we will have no choice play it when it arrives. Vegas now is empty city because city
    is devil and Corona must wipe out Vegas to bring out peace.
    Why 5 g cell phone towers every 1/2 mile? Is this going to be center of another Wuhan with 5 g installations. What ever it is testing us with Corona and ultimately with higher than Corona or disease X. Bill Gates resigned as Micro Soft to cash in all his stocks? This disease X is not one that kills humanity in numbers. It will come and released for futures this was a test run? what do you think?
