MINA, Nev. - The Nevada Seismological Laboratory is reporting a 5.2 magnitude earthquake about 24 miles south of Mina, though the US Geological Survey has downgraded that to 4.9.

They report the earthquake hit at 4:10pm Tuesday.

So far, there have been no reports of damage or injuries, but at least three more quakes between three and four magnitude shook the area in the next several hours.

The shaking was felt at the Hard'Rock Market in Mina. The owner tells KOLO 8 News Now she felt the shaking last for about 3-4 seconds, but nothing fell off her shelves.

Calls to the Mizpah Hotel in Tonopah indicate people felt a small shake, but nothing to cause concern.
