Small Earthquake Shakes Nevada, Felt In Las Vegas

The U.S. Geological Survey says a small earthquake shook southwest Nevada, about 15 miles from Las Vegas. There were no immediate reports of damage or injuries. The USGS reported on its website that the quake happened at 3:11 a.m. Sunday and had a preliminary magnitude of 3.6. It was centered 9 miles from Enterprise about 15 miles southwest of Las Vegas.

USGS geophysicist Randy Baldwin describes the quake as having "non-damaging intensity." Tim Szymanski of Las Vegas Fire and Rescue says the quake was felt in downtown Las Vegas, but no calls were received by the 911 center.
