April 24, 2008
RENO (AP) ” An earthquake Thursday afternoon shook residents from Truckee-Tahoe to Reno but there are no immediate reports of injuries.
The U.S. Geological Survey Service reports a 4.1 magnitude quake that hit just before 4 p.m. Thursday was centered four miles west-northwest of Reno. It shook The Associated Press bureau on the fifth floor of a downtown Reno building for about 30 seconds, causing the building to sway briefly and overhead televisions to swing back and forth.
USGS says it follows a 3.8 magnitude trembler at 3:47 p.m. and a 2.6 event at 3:51 p.m.
The quakes are in an area where several smaller temblors have been centered in recent weeks.
