The focal depth was 3.9 miles below the surface. It was widely felt from 0roville to Reddincj, to Susan- ville, but there were no reports of dam- age or injuries. The activity began on November 7 with a series of six Mls, then paused on November 8, surged on the 9th with 22 events and the 10th with 23 events, then shortly after midnight,the larcjest event occurred. It was followed by a robust aftershocks sequence and by the end of the reporting period, the sequence had produced 203 earth- quakes, including 54 M 2s but no more in the M 3 range. The sequence is ongoing. This was the first M 3 quake at Lassen Peak since 2001 and the largest since a robust swarm in 1953. The earthquake swarm in northern Washoe County, Nevada jumped into high gear, producing nearly 500 earthquakes, including eight M 4s and 68 M 3s. The larcj- est jolts measured M 4.5 and M 4.6 and occurred November 7 an 12. Angel tree program helps families in n00.00ed The Plumas County Sheriffs Employees' Association's Needy Children's Christmas program is in full swing once again, reports organizer Becky Grant, from the Plumas County Sheriffs Office. "Names of families and kids needing assistance are coming in," said Grant. "Anyone requesting to sign up for assistance can still mail in the form sent out to all Plumas County residents or you can come to the sheriffs office and fill out .the form. All recipients are also automatically put in for a food basket from Community Assistance Network." In the Quincy area, the group has set up an angel tree at American Valley Hardware in the Plumas Pines Shopping Center. Donors may choose an angel ornament from the tree and purchase gifts for the child described on it. Toy drop-off boxes are also located at the Plumas County Elections Office in the courthouse, Dollar General, Plumas County Animal Shelter, NAPA Auto Parts and the sheriffs office at 1400 E. Main St. Distribution of toys and coats will be held Dec. 22 and 23 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the sheriffs office. "We will take toy donations through Christmas Eve to help fill any last-minute requests that come through," said Grant. Distribution of the food baskets from CAN will be held Dec. 20, 9 a.m. - 3 p.m. at St. John's Parish Hall; and Dec. 21, 9 a.m. - 3 p.m. at the CAN food bank located at ]76 Lawrence St. The last day to sign up for a food basket is Dec. 17.
