Residents in Beatty, Goldfield, Tonopah and Hawthorne felt the shak- ing. One Tonopah resident reported the quake tossed her about after she had gone to bed. Others stated they felt their entire homes shake briefly. No damage was re- ported. The quake's epicenter was located about 11 miles southeast of Deep Springs, California in an area known as the Eureka Valley. Sev- eral aftershocks occurred with the largest measuring The previous week's earthquake was a magnitude 5.3 located in Nevada about 25 miles northeast of Friday's quake. That quake was also felt throughout the southcentral region of Nevada. Aftershocks from that quake are still being recorded, although they are at a barely detectable level. According to the University of Nevada Reno Seismologi- cal Laboratory, Friday's quake may have been a large, be- lated, aftershock of a magnitude 6.1 earthquake that occurred in the Eureka Valley on May 17, 1993. Diane Detolo, UNR Siesmologist, told the PVG that there has been a noticeable increase in earthquake activity through- out the region since October and seismologists are watching the activity closely, however, "we cannot make predictions." Detolo stated that the activity can "shut itself off tomor- row" and leave everyone wondering. Asked if the Nevada and California earthquakes are in any way related to increased activity at Mammoth Lakes, Califor- nia, Detolo stated "anything is possible." The general consen- sus is that the quakes are not related. Activity in the Mammoth Lakes region in the past week has increased significantly with two swarms of earthquakes being recorded on November 13 and 14 then again on Novem- ber 17 and 18. These swarms were the largest recorded by the U.S. Geological Survey since the area became active again in July with over 500 earthquakes recorded on each day. Most of the Mammoth Lakes earthquakes are not large enough to be felt but quite a few 2.5 magnitude and above quakes have been felt. The largest event of last week's swarm was a 3.9 that occurred at 11:43 a.m. on November 13. Scientists for the U.S.G.S. are monitoring the activity at Mammoth closely. They have recently noted an increase in the resurgent dome of the Long Valley Caldera and have associated it with the movement of magma, however, they stress that there is no immediate cause for concern. "We live in an earthquake area," said Detolo, "we have to learn to live with them, expect them and protect ourselves by being prepared for them."
