The intensity of seismicity increased as well as five events registered in the M 2 range, but none hit the M 3 level.

The sequence staffed with a M 2A jolt at 129 p.m. on Tuesday, January 27, and was fol- lowing 28 minutes later by a M 2.6 event. The other seven events sputtered out dur- ing the next two days, including a M 2.3 Wednesday night. The two largest quakes were felt by several people throughout the Truckee Meadows. The activity happened at 3.4 miles (shallow) below the surface and the type of fault motion was strike-slip. Two quakes measuring M Z.1 and 1.3 triggered at Lake Almanor and a 2.2 was detected at Eagle Lake. A series of five quakes was detected at Lassen Peak. Construction workers get to work Feb. 3 on the new building that is being constructed next to the Plumas Rural Services office on Cemetery Hill. The new building will house PRS' Domestic Violence Shelter Program and Child Abuse Treatment Program. Photo by James Wilson Plumas Rural Services extends base of operation James Wilson Staff Writer Plumas Rural Services is getting a new addition to house its programs. But it might not be enough. Construction started at the beginning of January on a new building in the lot adjacent to the organization's current building at 711 E. Main St. on Cemetery Hill in Quincy. According to PRS Executive Director Michelle Piller, construction of the building has been six years in the making. The Plumas County Community Development Commission was awarded an $800,000 community development block grant years ago to meet the needs of a targeted population. People recovering from abuse fail into that category, and PRS' programs aim to help that population. It was decided that the grant would go toward constructing a new building for PRS. PRS will house its Domestic Violence Shelter Program along with its Child Abuse Treatment Program in the new building. Currently those two programs operate out of the current building on the hill. That building also houses Plumas Transit, the local Women, Infants and Children program and the nonprofit's administrative staff. The planned building will be one floor and measure 2,570 square feet. Once those two programs are housed in the new building, the other PRS programs can utilize the space of the old building more effectively. In addition to the new building, the parking lot at the site will be extended to fit more cars. A storm drainage pond will also be installed, in the oak-filled lot east of PRS' current building. When the idea of constructing a new building first came up, plans were drawn to meet the needs ofPRS' staffat the time. Now that construction is finally starting, the building may not be enough to handle the needs of the two programs that will be housed there. "When it was designed. offices were planned for t.wo licensed therapists," said Piller. "But now we have four on staff." In addition to two offices for therapists, the building will house an open office space for multiple desks, a front lobby and a small conference room that Piller said will be available for public use. The total cost of the building is $630,000. The remaining $170,000 of the grant covered permits, management fees, architectural fees, county fees and other administrative costs. The building's foundation is currently being constructed in its planned loCation, just, north of the existing building. Builders have until the end of August to complete construction. Piller has high hopes, however, and predicts building will be completed by the beginning of July. Science Night Students check out the computer-aided drafting program at the 3-D printer booth. Students at Family Science Night designed objects using drafting software before inputting the designs into the computer commanding the 3-D printer.
