Jessica are you and all your family okay...hopefully no damage with all the earthquakes.

My inlaws house was quite a mess as they live off Robb drive so pretty close to the main epicenter, but my dad said that in Sparks they were just startled and woken up, but no damage done...

I hope you are okay, check in with us.

    Hi Christine...

    Thanks for checking up on me. Yeah last night was FREAKY...think they reclassified the quake to 4.7! We live up in the northwest too by McQueen High and it was nuts. Mirrors fell off the walls and a few pictures broke and stuff but other than that its okay. There was a couple more this morning but not as big.

    I am getting really sick of them though...there was 130 the other day (mostly small ones) but still...its very nerve racking! Hopefully that was the "big" one and it will stop but the news seems to think there will be a bigger one!

      Glad to know you're okay. I hated earthquakes when I was in LA. Seattle had some, too, when I was little (before Mt. St. Helens erupted). You have my sympathies. And good thoughts and such!!

      I thought I remembered you saying you lived in northwest Reno, I am so glad you are okay. I can't believe how many of them there were, we talked to all our parents today and when they said there were five strong ones in a row I knew it was pretty serious. Hopefully you have taken down anything breakable for now until this settles down.

        Thanks ladies....yes I took everything down for now because we have felt a few small ones still today. Guess I will just have to have nothing on the walls for a while which is fine! Hopefully tonight nothing happens....I havent slept in a couple of nights becuase the bigger ones seem to hit in the middle of the night and then I am totally freaked out!!

              We are headed to Reno the end of June and my family was freaking about going down there when the earthquakes were happening. They talked about cancelling the trip and I think that's a little silly, but that's just me.

              So glad everyone is OK. We had a few big earthquakes when I was in jr. high. Two 6.0 and 5.4. It was crazy and a little exciting to me. The aftershocks did get old though. Our town had some damage too- a few schools were closed down from major damage.

THere was another one this morning...4.2...nothing terrible but its very nerve wracking because you never know if the next one is going to be huge or not. You guys should be fine by then.....dont let it stop you from coming!
