Hundreds of small- to medium-sized quakes strike near Hawthorne, Nevada


A large swarm of earthquakes has rattled the Buller Mountain area near Hawthorne, Nevada since March 5, 2010. At least 400 small- and medium-sized earthquakes measuring between M1.0 and M4.6 have struck a 10 sq km area since April 10., NASA-EO reported.  “This map shows earthquake locations (white circles) from March 5, 2011, through the early morning of April 27, superimposed on a natural-color satellite image from September 19, 2002…  Several abandoned mines are visible as bright scars on the landscape, and the lava flows of Mud Springs Volcano are dark gray. The image was acquired by the Enhanced Thematic Mapper Plus (ETM+) aboard Landsat 7. ” The earthquake swarm is said to be tectonic in origin. Source: NASA-EO.
