The inten- sity of seismicity remained the same as only two quakes registered in the M 2 range. The largest earthquake measured M 2.8 and occurred at 938 p.m. on Wednes- day, June 10, in southern Plumas County near the Fall River at Lamkin Ridge. It triggered at about five miles below the 1.3 | 4:46 p.m. | 2.8 6/6  9:38 p.m. 5/10 surface. It was felt by a few residents of Oroville, Forbestown and Grass Valley. One said it hit with a pretty sharp jolt and was followed by several quick ground shudders causing their windows to rattle and hanging plants to swing. It was followed by three aftershocks, the largest of which measured M 2.1 and was also locally felt. The activity occurred within the Sierra geomorphologic provi- dence where the rocks are hard and dense, likely the reason the main shock was felt so sharply. A M 1.3 jolt happened between the Lake Almanor Peninsula and Prattville. Where in the world? Amber McMichael attends the recent RT Booklovers Convention in Dallas, Texas.
