The RC Morning Report for June 5
Carson a little shaky
Southeastern Carson City was the center of a 2.8 earthquake on the south end of Prison Hill at 5:59 p.m. According to the Nevada Seismology Lab, that spot has been pretty active with seven quakes over the last three days.
No third farmers market this year
Carson Valley may be ripe for a third farmers market, but Gardnerville Town Board members felt that rather than get a late start, they would prepare for a market in Heritage Park for summer 2014. They heard a presentation on Tuesday night about establishing a market at the park. On a side note, the Lampe Park farmers market is dark today for Carson Valley Days. It will be back next week.
Accident near Woodfords
There was a vehicle accident in Woodfords reported at 5:22 a.m. on Highway 88 just west of Diamond Valley Road. The California Highway Patrol is reporting minor injuries.
Lightning fire near Bridgeport
A quarter-acre lightning-caused wildfire is being fought in Black Smith Canyon near Bridgeport. The fire was set Monday evening.
The forecast is for a chance of thunderstorms as the temperature doesn’t quite crack 90 degrees. Expect more of the same on Thursday and then into the oven we go for a bit.
