Quake in northeast Nevada

A magnitude 6.3 earthquake damaged buildings in the area around Wells, Nevada early this morning. While this is a considerable distance from Arizona, I'm posting about it because at first glance, it appears to be a typical Basin and Range style earthquake, that we can expect to occur in central and southern Arizona. There may be much we can learn from it.

5pm update: the Reno Gazette Journal posted sets of photos sent in from readers in Wells.
