Several small earthquakes struck the Carson City area in Northern Nevada on Thursday night, seismologists reported.
Four quakes hit an area between Virginia City and Carson City just after 9 p.m., the Nevada Seismic Network tweeted. Earlier in the evening, three quakes struck the Mount Rose region, south of Reno and along the California-Nevada border. Five of the quakes were stronger than magnitude 2.
The strongest was a 3.7-magnitude quake (depth of about seven miles), which hit about four miles southeast of Washoe City, the network said. A quake of magnitude 2.5 to 3 is the smallest usually noticed by people.
The quakes also were reported by the United States Geological Survey (USGS).
