One quake measured in the M 2 range. It measured M 2.9 and occurred a 6:56 a.m. Thursday morning, May 7, at Can- yondam and near the epicenter of the moderately strong M 5.7 earthquake on May 23, 2013. It was widely felt in the 1.7 8:01 p.m. 5/7 1.0 3:55 a.rn. 5/11 1.3 6:16 a.m, 5/12 1.8 3:57 a.m. 5/13 area. It was accompanied by four quakes in the M 1 range. Aftershocks like these will likely persist for years as the rocks find there new tectonic comfort zone. A lone M 1.9 tremor occurred on the northwest flank of Lassen Peak. Rather fitting considering t00 years ago, Lassen was in the midst of a major volcanic eruptive sequence. For several months, small steam and ash emissions were hap- pening that were likely accompanied by numerous earthquakes, and on May 22, 1915, it erupted violently. Lassen had sev- eral other minor eruptions into the early 1920s. In deed, this is still an active volcano. This was the headline for the May 10, 1945 edition of the Feather River Bulletin. This year's Memorial Day ceremony will commemorate the 70th anniversary of the end of World War II in Europe and Japan'. Public invited to annual Memorial Day event The 10th annual Memorial Day Ceremony will be dedicated to World War II veterans as the nation celebrates the 70th anniversary of VE and VJ Days -- the end of World War II in Europe and Japan.
