The R-C Morning Report for Oct. 15

We had a little shaker down Coleville way this morning. According to UNR’s Seismology web site it was just a 1.3 magnitude located south of town at 5:45 a.m.

I’m scheduled to speak at Kiwanis this morning. The last time we met was in 2012. A lot has happened in three years. Kiwanis meet 6:30 a.m. at the COD Garage Casino. The trouble starts around 7 a.m., I’m told.

I hope to hear something about the rollover at Highway 395 and Riverview on Wednesday night. One person was transported as a result of the wreck and the road was closed for 90 minutes. We really need a means around the bottlenecks on Highway 395 both south of Ruhenstroth and north of Jacks Valley.

Commissioners will learn about gas indexing noon today at Kahle Community Center and then will meet 1:30 p.m. at the Stateline Transportation Center. Redevelopment in Stateline is the big item at that session.

There was a lightning strike above Jobs Peak Ranch last night while rescuers were at the rollover accident. They couldn’t find where there’d been any ignition, but that doesn’t mean there won’t be. The forecast has a chance of scattered showers and thunderstorms through the weekend, so hopefully we’ll see more rain and less lightning.

Today’s forecast calls for a chance of rain after 11 a.m. with a high temperature of 82 degrees. The wind will be out of the east this afternoon at 5-10 mph.
