Driving the increase was not the Yuba Gap-Sierra Valley aftershock zone that has been so active since the M 4.7 and M 4.1 earthquakes last October, but a new swarm north of Lake Tahoe in the Carson Range. It began with a M 2.7 at 12:34 a.m. on Friday, January 27, about ten miles north of Incline Village and nine miles south of Verdi near Mt. Rose. Over the next two days another 11 quakes were recorded, including three more in the M 2 range. Apparently the activity passed without being felt. Two small aftershocks were recorded to the January 26 M 3.2 earthquake that happened northwest of Burney near Iron Canyon Reservoir. Two more quakes were recorded at Lake Almanor, the largest of three trem- ors north of Ouincy at Mount Hough measured M 1.7, and the strongest of two jolts at Lassen Peak registered M 1.8.
