Shaky Reno, Nev., is jiggled by another moderate quake

RENO, Nev. (AP) -- The area around Reno, Nevada, continues to
shake as another moderate earthquake has been recorded in the
region.
The Seismology Laboratory at the University of Nevada, Reno,
says a magnitude 4.2 tremor shook the city early today and has been
followed by at least a dozen aftershocks.
No injuries or damage have been reported.
It's the latest in a two-month swarm of earthquakes that started
in February, and scientists say this is unusual because the tremors
are getting stronger, instead of weaker.
The strongest shock so far was a magnitude 4.7 quake that shook
cans off shelves on Friday.
