BODIE, Calif. (AP) — A magnitude 5.2 earthquake has rattled the remote California-Nevada state line but no damage or injuries have been reported. The U.S. Geological Survey says the quake struck around 7:30 a.m. Saturday and was centered near Bodie, a former gold-mining town that is now a state park in the eastern Sierra Nevada mountain range. It was followed by several aftershocks. Two were larger than magnitude 3.0.  –Bakersfield Now

The seismic activity began at 7:36 a.m. with the 5.2 temblor, which the U.S. Geological Survey said was felt in parts of the Central Valley and into the San Francisco Bay Area. That quake was centered near Mono Lake and the historic ghost town of Bodie. There were no reports of damage or injuries. Mono County sheriff’s dispatchers in Bridgeport, about 30 miles northwest of Bodie, felt the earthquake, Sgt. Magdaleno Hernandez told the Associated Press. He said they have not received any reports of damages or injuries. It was followed by a series of aftershocks, including one that measure magnitude 4.6 and another that measured magnitude 4.1, according to the USGS.  –LA Times

    Thanks Alvin! Yes, there have been many earthquakes throughout the western USA. With such a wide area of activity out there I was wondering if any one has come up with a viable clue as to what is causing the inter mountain west to be so active. I have also noticed that the famous San Andreas fault has been active as well from Salton sea to central California as well as the junction to the Juan Defuca plate.
