14B Wednesday, Nov. 19, 2014 Bulletin, Record, Progressive, Reporter There are no indications a Lassen Peak eruption may be on the horizon, but last week the area near the southern most volcano in the Cascades experienced a swarm of earthquake activity. File PhOto Scientists tracking earthquake swarm near Chester Sam Williams Staff Writer swillia ms@lassen news.com Just after everyone's attention focused on an earthquake swarm in Northwestern Nevada, a new earthquake swarm hit closer to home just beyond the boundary of Lassen Volcanic National Park. According to a Wednesday, Nov. 12, email from Dr. Margaret T. Mangan, the scientist in charge of the California Volcano Observatory, the agency is "tracking an earthquake swarm located at the Tehama County-Plumas County border within Lassen National Forest. The swarm is about 24 kilometers west-northwest of the town of Chester and about 1 mile south of the Lassen Volcanic National Park boundary near the Twin Meadows Trail at Patricia Lake." Mangan reports since the start of the swarm Monday, Nov. 8, "About 50 earthquakes at or above magnitude M1.0 have been Andreas fault system -- the two fault systems account for most of the seismic activity in California. Fortunately, she reports, "Ground deformation indicative of volcanic unrest has not been detected by nearby GPS receivers. detected. A magnitude M3.86 Although the swarm poses earthquake at about 12:30 a.m. Tuesday, Nov. 11, was the largest event to date." Mangan wrote a preliminary analysis of the earthquake swarm near Lassen Volcanic National Park suggests it is the result of "fault motions along the northwest margin of the Walker Lane fault system." The Walker Lane fault system runs through the Mojave Desert and along the eastern flank of the Sierra and -- together with the San no immediate threat, it is possible the shaking may produce spontaneous changes in nearby hydrothermal features, especially at the nearby Growler Hot Springs located about 1 kilometer to the southwest of swarm area." The agency's website is volcanoes.usgs.gov/observat ories/calvo. Earth continues to move in Nevada According to University of Nevada Media Newsroom, "Two 4.7 magnitude earthquakes and more than 50 3.0 or greater magnitude earthquakes mark an uptick in seismic activity one week after a 4.6 magnitude earthquake struck far northwest Nevada on Nov. 4, 2014." The N0rthwestern Nevada earthquake swarm is located about 40 miles southeast of Lakeview, Oregon, and 40 miles northeast of Cedarville. State and federal researchers report six earthquakes larger than magnitude 4 have rocked the area recently. The largest two events (magnitude 4.7) occurred just after midnight Nov. 6 and Nov. 7. A magnitude 4.1 earthquake struck the area at 6:42 a.m. Wednesday, Nov. 12. "This recent activity marks an increase in both magnitude and number of events for this swarm that began five months ago," the website reports. "In total, there have been 101 earthquakes larger than 3.0, the largest being magnitude 4.7, and eight earthquakes have been larger than magnitude 4.0." The Nevada activity "resembles" a 1968 swarm near Adel, Oregon, that lasted several months and included three events of approximately magnitude 5. The Adel swarm caused moderate damage. "Another comparison," the website reports, "is the 2008 Mogul-Somersett swarm in northwest Reno that involved an increasingly vigorous series of earthquakes during a two-month period leading to i a magnitude 5 event .... Following any sequence of earthquakes similar to wha t : is occurring in Northwest Nevada, there is a small increase in the probability of: a significantly larger event. ' Whether a larger event will Odcii iii the northwest Nevada swarm cannot be predicted or forecast.., and citizens are encouraged to take steps to prepare for the potential for strong ground shaking."
