Three more quakes in swarm in area of known faults

There were three more small earthquakes in northwest Arizona along the Nevada border on Friday, bringing the total to 11 since March 28.

The most recent ones were:
Magnitude 2.0 at 11:41 a.m.
Magnitude 1.5 at 12:01 p.m.
Magnitude 1.7 at 8:45 p.m.   (all in local times)

USGS geologist George Billingsley's map of area shows the Coxcomb, a long ridge at the southern extreme of the area hit by this recent seismicity [right]. The yellow circle encompasses some of the 1.0 M events.  The M2.0+ events are just off the map to the NNW.
