Another earthquake hits east of Lincoln

Posted: Updated:

LINCOLN - It's not just flooding that Lincoln residents have to worry about.

A fault southeast of town generated another sizable quake Monday morning, one of dozens since a major quake shook the region a year ago.

The quake on Monday registered a 3.5 magnitude and happened just after 5 a.m.

The initial epicenter was reported as eight miles southeast of Lincoln, which is near Flesher Pass.

That's the same area where a 5.8 magnitude quake hit early last summer.

There were no initial reports of any damage.

The fault has been producing quakes regularly since the major shake happened last summer, frequently more than one a week.
