A 3.8 magnitude earthquake was reported on the north side of Lake Tahoe around 3:08 pm on Thursday. The quake, which rattled near the Carnelian Bay just off Watson Creek Road, was initially reported as a 4.1 earlier, only to be corrected by the U.S. Geological Survey.
Over 200 people from Tahoe Vista to Reno reported feeling the rumble in the ground. As with any earthquake, social media buzzed to see if everyone else felt the quake:
