I did not feel them, but they happened. And they happened not far from Las Vegas!
At 11:47 PST, a 5.4 magnitude earthquake struck about 24 miles south of Caliente, NV. A few minutes later, at 12:05, another struck at 3.8 magnitude. There are no reports as of this writing of any injuries or damage.
While I am writing this, one more occurred at 12:19, a 3.0. I will keep you all posted of new developments as they occur.
UPDATE: NBC News 3 reports that there is some damage to the U.S. 95 southbound ramp toward I-15. It is reported as closed for now. http://www.news3lv.com/default.aspx
UPDATE 12:52: Another, 3.4 at 12:41. This one makes number 4.
UPDATE 4:00: We have had 5 quakes today. There are some closures on I-15 and I-95. Check with local news sources for specifics. No injuries have been reported so far and the damage appears to be minimal for now.
UPDATE 5:12: Another at 5:07, 2.8 magnitude. Looks like we aren’t finished.
