Seismic Shaking

Feeling a little shaky?  Northeastern California, and in fact the entire pacific rim is experiencing some unusual seismic activity lately.

Many Susanville residents felt last Friday’s quake, centered just north of Quincy.  That shaker, which the USGS rated a magnitude 4.5, has been followed by 14 separate aftershocks registering between 1.7 and 2.8.

Closer to home, the Honey Lake valley has shaken repeatedly with minor temblors, the latest of which occurred yesterday at 10:26am.

That magnitude 2.5 quake was felt by many residents in the flats between Wendel and Janesville.

This series of quakes is in concert with heightened activity throughout the entire pacific rim, and ties in with a swarm of Earthquakes called ‘unusual’ by scientists in the Yellowstone caldera.

Whenever you think you feel a quake you can log onto the USGS website by clicking here.  They have automated quake information online immediately when the ground shakes.
