More Earthquakes

Last night the Mogul/Verdi area had two more earthquakes at 3.0 (or 3.1). The total for this earthquake swarm at this moment is 300. The swarm according to the Seismological laboratory started after the Wells earthquake.

Unfortunately, we are sure (as positive as we can be) that this swarm will eventually get to a 6.0. However, the problem is… no one knows when. It could be tomorrow, it could be next year, or it could be in two hundred years.

So everyone up here is stocking food and first aid kits. The T.V. stations are trying to prepare the folks for worse by talking about “duck and cover” and earthquake kits.

At this time, we are fine. Unfortunately after 300 3.0 and less earthquakes, many of the homes in the Reno area are starting to crack. Some of the unreinforced masonry around the chimneys will soon cause these objects to fall down.

So what is worse, one 6.0 or 300 3.0 earthquakes. We will soon find out.
