Minor Quakes Continue to Shake Northwest Reno

A swarm of minor earthquakes that have rattled northwest Reno for nearly three months continued Thursday with another measurable jolt.

Seismologists at the University of Nevada, Reno revised the magnitude of the 6:44 a.m. temblor to 3.4, up from a 3.2.

There were no reports of damage or injuries.

It's the latest in a series of quakes of varying magnitudes that began Feb. 28.

In recent days, the seismic activity appeared to have diminished, with fewer quakes being recorded.

The largest so far was a 4.7 quake on April 25.

The swarm has produced thousands of quakes, with hundreds greater than magnitude 1.
