What about Those Pesky Somersett Earthquakes In 2008

 You probbaly have heard about the approximate 500 earthquakes that hit the Somersett Mogul area just west of Reno. They started in February and ended in May, they were very unsettling to have lived through. Most of the quakes were a magnitude 1 or 2 but on April 25, 2008 there was a 4.7 that hit at 11:40. We had a lot of broken glass and pictures that fell off the wall.

We ended up with about $1000 worth of cosmetic damage to sheetrock and corner beadings. The good thing that came out of this is when Im showing houses in the Somersett area you can see that these homes have been through some serious seismic activity and the majority of the homes have faired very well. Check out the links below for more information on the quakes.
