4.16 earthquake hits Mono Lake
August 11, 2017
At least one person in Gardnerville reported feeling a 4.16 magnitude earthquake centered over the eastern shore of Mono Lake on Friday night.
The University of Nevada, Reno, Seismology Lab reported detecting the quake at 8:09 p.m.
There have been no reports of damage as a result of the earthquake, which was across the lake from Lee Vining, Calif.
The U.S. Geological Survey reports more than 50 people responded to its web site to report feeling the quake.
Mono Lake is located along the Walker Lane, which is a geological trough that geologists believe could eventually take over for the San Andreas Fault as the North American plate boundary.
