Big Earthquake Near Elko, Nevada


As many Nevadans know, Nevada is earthquake country.

This just in this morning:

A 6.3 magnitude earthquake hit northeastern Nevada this morning with reports of property damage but no injuries so far. The quake had its center approximately 10 miles from the Utah border.

Good news so far regarding injuries; though the area that the quake affected is largely unpopulated.

As an aside: Elko County is beautiful country (how could any place that boasts the "Ruby Mountains" be otherwise?).
