Reno, Nev. (MyNews4.com & KRNV) - The U.S. Geological Survey is reporting that a 4.7 magnitude earthquake hit Northern California at 11:37 on Wednesday night.

They say that the quake was centered around Truckee, just 35 miles west of Reno.

Almost one hour later, the largest after shock of 2.5 magnitude hit the same area.

Since then, a number of smaller aftershocks have been reported.





Reno, Nev. (MyNews4.com & KRNV) - The USGS is reporting a magnitude 4.8 earthquake that hit at 11:37pm local time.  The USGS reports the epicenter was nine miles from Whitehawk, CA, or 35 miles west of Reno.  Fourteen minutes later a 2.4 magnitude earthquake struck in the same area.

By midnight two other aftershocks under 2.0 magnitude were felt of 1.9 and 1.5.

Dozens of News 4 viewers have reported feeling the quake around Northern California and Northern Nevada.

Initial reports have people feeling the quake in San Luis Ibispo, California about 300 miles away from the epicenter and in Yerington, Nevada about 90 miles away from the epicenter.  

A Nevada County sheriff's dispatcher in Truckee, which is along Interstate 80 about 23 miles from the epicenter, says it was a rolling quake and no damages and no injuries have been reported.

Kramer, you're harshly criticizing the news reporters on every little detail, yet you're now commenting on a different quake that happened over a year and a half ago. Maybe you should pay attention to what you're doing yourself before being so critical of others!

I was driving so i missed it, but think of Almanor and Mountain Meadows reservoir, Lakes Oroville and Davis. Maybe it was just a little 'burp' so we can relax.

Shook our house in Chilcoot - the dogs went nuts barking, then they jumped off the bed like we did when it happened. Had to pick up stuff that fell off the fireplace mantle and all the hanging pictures needed to be straightened. Just another day in paradise!

I was checking my email at that time and figured it was one of my boxers walking by me and my chair wobbled a little but then noticed both of them were flaked out in their beds. So I figured it was a little earthquake nothing to worry about.
