The Las Vegas Earthquake was an event that occurred during the 2012 Apocalypse.


In the early to late afternoon hours, a massive earthquake of a unknow magnitude struck the once famous city of Las Vegas, including the state of Nevada. Numerous people were killed in this catastrophe, while some managed to survive but were injured. The earthquake created a large canyon that split the city up into pieces.

When the earthquake subsided, the remains of the ruined Las Vegas were engulfed by the Yellowstone Ash Cloud when it began to spread around the United States and Canada.
