OV earthquakes

January 8, 2013

Two earthquakes rattled nerves in Bishop Tuesday morning, but didn’t otherwise cause any damage.
According to the U.S. Geological Survey, the first quake, a 2.3 on the Richter Scale, took place at 9:43 a.m. about five miles northeast of Bishop. About a half-hour later, a second quake, a 2.6, was recorded in the same location.
The two Owens Valley quakes come on the heels of a 2.6 recorded near Mammoth Lakes at about 7:30 p.m. Monday, Jan. 7.
