A very shallow M5.1 earthquake rattled Nevada on Dec. 1st, 11:32:56 p.m. UTC. The main tremor was directly followed by a swarm counting now more than 220 quakes and still increasing.

The quake hit at 3:32 p.m. local time at a depth of 3.1 miles (5km) about 15.5 miles south of Mina, Nevada.

Weak shaking might have been felt in Benton (pop. 280; 33 miles away), Hawthorne (pop. 3,300; 39 miles away), Goldfield (pop. 270; 55 miles away), West Bishop (pop. 2,600, 60 miles away), Mammoth Lakes (pop. 7,900; 62 miles away), and June Lake (pop. 630; 62 miles away).

A swarm of aftershocks followed the quake, including two M4.3 (3:43 p.m. and 3:47 p.m.) and two M4.4 quakes (6:23 p.m. and 8:48 p.m.).

One of the trongest earthquake in Nevada history hits on May 15, 2020, when a M6.5 magnitude blast rattled 225 miles from Las Vegas.

Since the start of 2020 the USGS has recorded over 78,000 earthquakes in the contiguous United States.

Most of them were tiny; only 13 were larger than M5.

The largest two, both M6.5, were in Nevada and Idaho, widely felt, but for the most part away from population centers.

  1. Our weatherman just posted about the Mina NV earthquake today. I immediately started looking up the DUMBS locations in NV. I think they might be blowing up tunnels as well.

  2. Al nations have built under ground tunnels.

  3. Wonder if one of those slave trafficking tunnels was destroyed. Supposed to be underground network of tunnels where all kinds of illegal activities go on right under our cities.
