The last wave of major earthquakes in the United States has hit Nevada.
This week, the state’s first major quake, which struck around 5:00 p.m. local time, occurred about 40 miles southeast of Las Vegas.
Nevada’s Bureau of Meteorology said that the magnitude 7.3 quake in Las Vegas hit at a depth of approximately 0.9 miles.
The next major earthquake to hit the state was magnitude 6.9 on April 20, which was followed by a 5.3 magnitude tremor on April 25.
While the previous waves of earthquakes have not been so severe, they have caused significant damage.
The National Weather Service in Reno, Nevada, said that on Friday night, more than 1,000 homes were destroyed.
Many of the homes were knocked down, according to the Reno Gazette-Journal.
In addition to the property damage, the earthquake also caused power outages, with the electricity company saying that it was experiencing a high volume of outages and that it is not aware of any instances of people getting stuck in power lines.
According to the National Weather Agency, a tsunami warning remains in effect for the Las Vegas area.
