Earthquake map centered at 38°N,119°W

A swarm of earthquakes continued along the California-Nevada border, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

It began Sunday and continued into Thursday, with scores of small temblors reported.

On Wednesday, the region around Hawthorne, Nev., recorded a 4.4 and 4.1 quake as well as many smaller temblors. There have also been smaller quakes on the California side of the border, along the Eastern Sierras in Inyo and Mono counties.

There have been no reports of damage or injuries.

And so what the H does it mean???? Is this a precurser to a big one? Don't these scientists who constantly study this stuff know anything more?

Earthquake swarms anywhere near Long Valley Caldera make me extremely nervous.

THE BIG ONE....it's coming.

Thanks for picking up on this story. I started to wonder if anyone was paying attention to this swarm, and wonder if it's leading up to a larger quake in the area. Any input from the USGS would be appreciated. I knew it was odd when I reported on it Sunday. Since then, there have been over 90 quakes in that area.

Do you want to live in fear ? I rather live happy and care free, when the time come the good lord will take care of things. Love

I felt a little tremor late last night, around 11 or so. Wonder if the plates due to Japan are starting to get somekind of pressure build up.

I just felt a tremor in Camarillo around 9:30PM tonight (April 14). I cannot help but feel that we're due for a noticeable quake. New Zealand, Japan, and CA are all in the ring of fire.

Interesting that a gold mine that was just reapproved in Dec. is right next to where the earthquakes are occurring. Coincidence? Look up the Borealis Mine Southeast of Hawthorne, NV.
