3.7 magnitude earthquake reported near Lake Tahoe
Two earthquakes hit near Lake Tahoe early Wednesday morning and were reported by hundreds of people.
About 900 reported feeling a 3.7 magnitude quake that was centered about 10 miles north to northwest of Truckee and at a depth of about five miles, which the United States Geological Survey reported at 1:17 a.m.
Three hours later, USGS reported another quake, an aftershock in the same location that was 2.8 in magnitude and was recorded at a depth of about four miles.
No damage was apparent, but some residents reported their dogs were unsettled and barking during the event.
