A Little Tremor....

...was all that was felt here in Idaho this past Thursday. But in Northeastern Nevada, a 6.0 earthquake hit the small town of Wells, Nevada. Almost all of the buildings in town (all 700) had some damage to them. Mostly in the historic district...which is sad, since some of the buildings were built as early as 1860.
But thankfully no one was injured!

Living in the Northwest...we've felt a few shakes! But fortunately haven't experienced any injury or damage from them. Have you had any similar experiences?

Goodness Suzanne! That would be scary to deal with, but thank goodness no one was hurt.
I suppose the strongest (I'll have to research that) earthquake we've had here in TN was the one in 1811 (or was it 1812?) that created Reelfoot Lake ~ NOT that I'm old enough to remember!
