Another quake hits east of Lincoln

(LINCOLN)- It's not just flooding that Lincoln residents have to worry about. A fault southeast of town generated another sizable quake this morning, one of dozens since a major quake shook the region a year ago. 

This morning's quake registered a 3.5 magnitude and happened just after 5 am. The initial epicenter was reported as 8-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.
