Well you would think I would be used to earthquakes having been raised in CA.
I went through the '89 quake and was only 3 miles from the epicenter, not fun at all!
So today I hear on the news that we had an earthquake here in Reno and have had several over the past few weeks. "They" say that the chances of us having a larger one has increased
Needless to say I HATE earthquakes, they scare the crap out of me!

So to scare myself a tad more I decide to look up the USGS site and found that Nevada is one of the most active states for earthquakes.

I need to turn the news off

O.K. CRAZY, just kidding - LOL

Oh I find it very interesting, any show on discovery or NGC about earthquakes I'm on it. But I would rather not be a part of one

It totally fascinates me. We really felt the one in Wells awhile back and the occasional aftershock. Wild stuff!

New Guy

I just moved into the Fernley community and trying to get settled. Insurance is a major
issue right now. I am particularly concerned about Earthquakes. DO I need insurance?
It runs about $700 a year. Please help me out.

Wells had another this morning, a 4.2. I felt it out here. They must be getting REALLY sick of that.
