Quake hits between Reno and Susanville near Herlong

HERLONG, Calif. (KOLO)-- A magnitude 4.5 earthquake struck between Reno and Susanville at 9:55 p.m. August 3, 2016, followed by a 4.4 aftershock about 45 miles north of Reno.
The 4.5 number comes from the US Geological Survey. The University of Nevada, Reno Seismological Lab puts the original quake at 4.9.
The quake struck between Herlong and Honey Lake and Janesville resident Wendy Raynard, who lives on the other side of Honey Lake from the quake, called the KOLO newsroom. Raynard said it felt like it was going to knock her mobile home off its foundation.
“It hit really hard,” Raynard said, then uttered “Oh my Gosh!” as she felt a magnitude 4.4 aftershock.
The quake and aftershocks were about 20 miles away. The main quake was about 1.3 miles underground.
She also felt the magnitude 4.0 that hit in the same area on Tuesday.
“This one was a lot stronger,” Raynard said. “I’ve lived here 16 years and I’ve never felt an earthquake here.”
