  1. Tim Castille says:

    Felt it in Sun City.

  2. Carol Thatcher says:

    My office chair shook once and that was it, live by Smith’s.

  3. I was setting at a poker machine in Casa Blanca and stool started moving for a few seconds and then seem to stop and then a shorter segment again.

  4. I felt it sitting out in the patio.

  5. Judy G. says:

    Was sitting in a recliner and felt it. Was a gentle tremor and not a jolt. My cat felt it and he looked up. He wasn’t real enthused. Have felt them before in Carson City and Alaska, but this was a first in Mesquite. If they start fracking NV, I am sure we will have many more.

      I felt it in my home on Bulldog drive. First a small shaking, then one that shook the whole house. Just lasted a few seconds.
