HAWTHORNE, Nev. (AP) - Two earthquakes have struck minutes apart in western Nevada.
The U.S. Geological Survey says a 3.8-magnitude temblor struck around 9:26 a.m. Saturday about 14 miles east of the Mineral County city of Hawthorne and 167 miles east of Sacramento, Calif. It was followed three minutes later by a 4.3-magnitude quake about eight miles southeast of Hawthorne.
A dispatcher with the Mineral County Sheriff's Department in Hawthorne said she felt light shaking but had not received any reports of injuries or damage.
