VIDEO: Swarm of 28 quakes strike Truckee area


TRUCKEE (KRON) — Twenty-eight small earthquakes hit just outside Truckee Tuesday morning, according to the United States Geological Survey.

The quakes, ranging in magnitude from -0.1-3.9, struck the same area about 11 miles northwest of Truckee, USGS officials said.

Most of the shakes were weaker than a 2.5 magnitude, and therefore do not show up on all databases.

The first one happened at 2:02 a.m. with a 3.7 magnitude.

The largest earthquake occurred just seven minutes later, and recorded a 3.9 magnitude.

The last quake was recorded at 8:00 a.m. with a magnitude of 2.0.

There are no reports of injuries or damage at this time.
