Earthquakes!!!

Today has been a nerve racking day. By my count we have had 8  earthquakes so far. The Nevada Seismological laboratory at the University o f Nevada has a story about the swarm of quakes. They haven’t even added the ones this afternoon. Our house is in the area on the map just to the west of the epicenters.

When I look a the official list I see I have missed several of the smaller ones.This is the list I have been compiling looking at the USGS earthquake map. If you look at the USGS list we have had 22 earthquakes so far today. The list below is just the ones I have noted. Other than the damage to my nerves we don’t seem to have any damage so far.
