GO BACK TO CALIFORNIA…EARTHQUAKE BREAKS FREEWAY

.

A 4.8-magnitude earthquake shook eastern Nevada just before noon local time Friday morning, surprising many residents and Las Vegas tourists who claimed they felt the tremor.

The quake was downgraded to 4.8 from 5.4 earlier and was centered 24 miles south-southwest of Caliente, Nevada, near the border shared by Nevada, Utah and Arizona, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. The temblor occurred just 2.6 miles below the surface. The epicenter was about 90 miles north of Las Vegas.

A gap on a ramp transitioning from Interstate 95 southbound toward I-15 southbound was thought to be earthquake damage, but Mary Martini of the Nevada Department of Transportation said it had already been there, KVVU-TV reported. The gap appeared to be worse than it really was, as the earthquake shook a protective barrier covering it loose. The ramp was closed but has since reopened.
