Geologists: Quake swarm increases chance of larger event

from Las Vegas Review-Journal

An earthquake swarm that began in a secluded northwest Nevada region this summer has grown more intense in recent days, increasing the chance of a large quake occurring, geology officials said. The activity is centered just off the state's northwest border, some 40 miles southeast of Lakeview, Oregon, and started July 12. Over the past three months, the laboratory has recorded some 550 incidents of seismic activity of a magnitude of 2.0 or larger, while there have been three magnitude 4.0 or higher quakes since Oct. 30. more
