Rare 5.4M Earthquake Nevada.


After a flurry of West coast earthquake activity yesterday going into this morning (May 22), now an extremely rare 5.4M earthquake has struck South Nevada.
Additionally, a new swarm of earthquakes is now developing at the South Nevada epicenter.
The location in Nevada appears to be an ancient dormant volcanic butte. The nearby dormant volcano is surely the culprit for this 5.4M earthquake today.

Search the coordinates, then look at the cliff sides to the East of the epicenter, you will see the old basalt flows, and the higher dome of the butte.

37.296°N 114.703°W

If you search the coordinates you will also come to find that there is an abandoned Copper mine (“Cherokee Copper mine”) located VERY close to the earthquake epicenter.

west coast earthquake watch was issued yesterday.  We have been watching the multiple dormant volcanoes show movement in the region, this 5.4 magnitude in Nevada.

Over the past week, the Markagunt volcanic plateau moved in South Utah, and now this dormant volcanic butte (unnamed) shows activity in South Nevada.

I first heard about this earthquake last night, May 22, from a friend who lives in Las Vegas. He's from Florida - this is a new experience for him!

Las Vegas freeway ramps reopen after 5.3-magnitude earthquake

Nevada Highway Patrol troopers and Nevada Department of Transportation workers inspect an expansion joint on the 95 south to I-15 south ramp after a 5.3 magnitude earthquake Friday, May 22, 2015.

Earthquake epicenter

All Las Vegas freeway ramps have reopened after a 5.3 magnitude earthquake hit about 125 miles north near Caliente, where the temblor rattled windows and dishes.
The quake, which struck at 11:47 a.m. today, was centered about 24 miles south-southwest of Caliente in Lincoln County but was felt across the Las Vegas Valley.
The freeway transition ramp from southbound U.S. 95 to southbound Interstate 15 near downtown Las Vegas was closed after the quake, as was the ramp from U.S. 95 southbound to I-15 northbound and the Martin Luther King on-ramp to southbound I-15, according to the Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada. Officials announced at about 5 p.m. that all the ramps were open.
Rubber encasing the bridge seam on the U.S. 95 ramp to southbound I-15 had separated, according to the Department of Transportation.
Engineers inspected the seam and ramp before determining there was pre-existing joint damage.
“The tremblor simply dislodged the protective rubber encasing the bridge seam making it look much worse than it was in reality,” NDOT District I Engineer Mary Martini said in a statement. “However, we’re issuing an emergency contract to repair the seam. Meanwhile, the ramps remain structurally sound and safe for travel.”
There were no other immediate reports of serious damage or injury.
Victor Jones, who runs an auto repair shop in Caliente, said that when he felt the earthquake, he thought it was from a “sonic boom.”
“I looked at my front doors in my shop, and they were moving back and forth about six inches. All of my glass was just shaking,” he said.

Las Vegas freeway ramps reopen after 5.3-magnitude earthquake - Las Vegas Sun News:

LAS VEGAS -- An earthquake about 100 miles northeast of Las Vegas shook the valley around 11:47 a.m Friday.
According to the website for the United States Geological Survey, the quake was centered near Caliente, Nevada. Initially, the U.S.G.S. reported the quake registered a magnitude of 5.4, but later downgraded it to 4.8.
There are reports of more than a dozen aftershocks ranging in magnitude from 1.0 to 3.5. Geologists said more are likely to occur.
The earthquake happened on a strike slip fault, which is a common type of fault line, north of the Las Vegas valley. Dr. Cindy Shroba from the College of Southern Nevada said it was a shallow earthquake -- an earthquake that occurs less than seven miles below the earth's surface.
"Well, it turns out that the earthquake was shallow. The shallower an earthquake is, the more energy gets dissipated on the earth's surface. And so if it were a deeper earthquake, we wouldn't feel it as much on the surface, we'd still detect it, but we wouldn't feel it," said Dr. Shroba.
Geologists say there are about a dozen identified faults that are scattered throughout the valley. They said none of them were responsible for Friday's earthquake.
Nevada Highway Patrol closed the off-ramps from U.S. 95 south to I-15 north and south due to damage that is earthquake related. All the ramps have since been reopened.
Clark County Emergency Management initiated a level 1 response which means they are monitoring the situation closely.

Earthquake Hits Las Vegas, Nevada

    The quake was downgraded to 4.8 from 5.4 earlier and was centered 24 miles south-southwest of Caliente, Nevada, near the border shared by Nevada, Utah and Arizona, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. The temblor occurred just 2.6 miles below the surface. The epicenter was about 90 miles north of Las Vegas.
