Continued from front page David Hill, chief scientist for the U.S. Geological Survey, stated that the quake, although only 47 miles from Mammoth Lakes, Calif., was not part of the Mammoth Lakes earthquake swarms being recorded since last 2uly. However, Hill did reveal that the Mammoth Lakes area is recording an increased uplift in the Long Valley Caldera, a volcanic area, in the past several months. "This indicates the movement of magma be- neath the surface," Hill told KIBS radio in Bishop. Hill iiiii ii i "The state of Nevada is the third most seismologically active state in the United States" Ill II Ill further stated that there was no immediate cause for concern, however, "it does have our attention." The Nevada quake was preceded by a 4.3 magnitude foreshock at 12:34 a.m. Sunday, November 2, and was followed by a rich aftershock sequence that included eight earthquakes above magnitude 3. This sequence included a4.8 at 7:03 a.m. and a 4.2 at 8:22 a.m. There have been several hundred aftershocks recorded that were smaller than a 3 magnitude. The southcentral Nevada earthquake follows a 4.0 earth- quake that occurred 14 miles north of Bishop, Calif., on October 29, and another swarm of 3-plus earthquakes that occurred near Hawthorne, Nev. several weeks ago. The quake was the largest to strike Nevada since a 6.0 struck Gardnerville, near Reno, in 1994. The state of Nevada is the third most seismologically active state in the United States, following California and Alaska. The areas from Reno to southcentral Nevada, includ- ing Tonopah and Goldfield, are considered highly active and rate a risk of "4" on a scale of four by the Federal Housing Administration.
