SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, Calif. - Did you feel the earth move at 8:25 a.m.?
The University of Nevada seismological lab recorded an earthquake on Friday morning in North Lake Tahoe and East Glenbrook near South Lake Tahoe that measured 4.3 magnitudes! It was located 1/2 mile deep below ground level but registered as only 2nd-largest temblor to hit California this year due to its depth and location rather than how strong it felt or lasting effects like most earthquakes do when they're shallow from plate movements beneath us such as those off our coast lessening their intensity before reaching shoreline communities northward up through Seattle where we get them all too often with scarcely any warning beforehand.
An earthquake measuring 4.3 hit the middle of Lake Tahoe this morning, and it is only the second quake in that area today! The shake was felt all the way at Carson City.

Just this morning, a 4.3 earthquake hit in the middle of Lake Tahoe at 8:25 A.M., just minutes after another quake shook Carson City (4 on the Richter scale). This is not uncommon for earthquakes to occur near each other but it does raise questions about why they seem so close together and how much damage these quakes could have done if any more were felt today or tomorrow.
