RENO, Nev. - The area around Reno, Nev., 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 Monday and has been followed by at least a dozen aftershocks.
No injuries or damages 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.
