A preliminary magnitude 6.5 earthquake was recorded in southern Nevada on Friday morning, May 15, 2020.

The main earthquake and its powerful series of aftershock were reported by over 14,500 people on the USGS website.

The quake had a first reported magnitude of 6.4, than M5.8 and finally has been upgraded to M6.5.

According to the USGS, the strong and shallow (2.8 km or 1.7 miles) M6.5 earthquake happened around 11:03 A.M. UTC (4:03 A.M. PDT) about 56km West of Tonopah, Nevada, just east of the Sierra Nevada range, southeast of Lake Tahoe.

The temblor was followed by multiple aftershocks, including two measuring as strong as 5.4, according to the USGS.

People as far as North California have felt the rumblings and heard some earthquake booms:

Even Oklahoma seismometers reported the rattling:

According to USGS, the area around the Mw6.4 Nevada EQ will continue to experience more earthquakes than usual. Some may be larger, but many smaller. And remember to always Drop, Cover, and Hold on if you feel shaking.

But do you realize we are close to Area 51?
