Small quake near Lake Mead
We had another small quake a few minutes ago, near Lake Mead along the AZ-NV border. The magnitude 2.4 event occurred at 7:20 am local time. [right, location map from USGS]
There have been a number of similar sized quakes in this area for several months. Could they be due to the refilling of Lake Mead from spring runoff coming down the Colorado River?
