A magnitude-6.5 earthquake rattled western Nevada just before sunrise today (May 15), waking up people at 4:03 a.m. local time (11:03 UTC), well before their morning alarms went off, according to news reports. 

This is the strongest earthquake to shake Nevada in 65 years. As of 5 a.m. local time (12:00 UTC), six magnitude-4 or higher aftershocks had already rocked the region, including a magnitude-5.1 aftershock just 23 minutes later, at 4:26 a.m. local time, according to the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS).
