Minor quakes continue to shake northwest Reno

RENO " A swarm of minor earthquakes that have rattled northwest Reno for nearly three months continued Thursday with another measurable jolt.

A temblor with a preliminary magnitude of 3.2 shook the Mogul-Verdi area at 6:44 a.m., according to seismologists at the University of Nevada, Reno.

There were no reports of damage or injuries.

It's the latest in a series of quakes of varying magnitudes that began Feb. 28.

In recent days, the seismic activity appeared to have diminished, with fewer quakes being recorded.

The largest so far was a 4.7 quake on April 25.

The swarm has produced thousands of quakes, with hundreds greater than magnitude 1.
