This elevated condition comes after five straight weeks of single-digit activity- the longest relaxed period in nearly four years, The intensity of seismicity increased from the previous week, producing three quakes in the M 2 range. Combined with the three events recorded last week, this is the highest tw0-week tally since the Mt. Rose M 3.7 earthquake and its after- shocks in late December. The largest earthquake measured M 2.4 and occurred north of Reno on the Black Rock Desert. At 4:31 p.m. Sunday afternoon, a M 22 earthquake was recorded about three miles west of Genesee in the lower H0s- selkus Creek drainage. It passed with0ut any felt reports. The strongest of three quakes southwest of Chester measured M 2.1 and a curious cluster of five quakes was recorded east of Pal0 Cedr0. and 4th Tuesdays. Doors open 5 'p.m., play begins 5.30.
