SCHURZ — A 4.6 magnitude earthquake has rocked western Nevada, but there were no reports of damage.
According to the U.S. Geological Survey, the quake struck at 12:07 a.m. Saturday and was centered about six miles southeast of Schurz in Mineral County and 100 miles southeast of Reno.
The sheriff’s department and Schurz police department said there were no reports of damage or injuries.
Janet Salgado said she felt the quake for five to seven seconds while sitting on a couch at her home in Fernley, about 70 miles north of the epicenter. She said she felt a “pretty strong” rumbling sensation and it scared her.
In April, a swarm of more than 400 quakes, including a magnitude 4.6, shook an area southwest of Hawthorne, which is 30 miles south of Schurz.
