Minor Quake In Los Alamos
By KRWG News
Los Alamos – A small earthquake has been recorded about 40 miles north-northwest of Los Alamos and 65 miles northwest of Santa Fe.
The U.S. Geological Survey says Tuesday morning's earthquake registered 2.9, but the operator of the Los Alamos Laboratory seismic network says it registered closer to 2.3.
An earthquake under a magnitude of 3.0 is considered very minor.
According to the modified Mercali Intensity scale, such a quake could be felt indoors by many and outdoors by a few, and could disturb dishes, windows and doors.
