Early morning fire call for W.V.F.D. Monday

A hay fire at the Chad and Sunni Nordhausen farm south of Wauneta had members of the Wauneta Volunteer Fire Department on the run at sun up Monday morning. The blaze was held in check by firefighters, with a limited amount of hay lost in the fire. Department members remained at the site for several hours, however, to ensure the smoldering pile of recently ground hay did not re-ignite.

Pair of quakes hit NW Nebraska last week

A second earthquake has struck parts of northwest Nebraska and southwest South Dakota.

The U.S. Geological Survey confirmed the area between Chadron and Crawford, and Hot Springs, S.D., had two small earthquakes last week.

The first, with a magnitude of 3.7 on the Richter scale, happened just before midnight Sunday, Nov. 13. The second, which had a magnitude of 3.3, happened about 2:30 a.m. Tuesday, Nov. 15.

Both were felt by residents but neither was strong enough to cause damage.
