The largest earthquake measured I~ 2.8 and occurred during the dinner hour on Tuesday, December 9. It was centered along the southeastern margin of Sierra Valley near Lombardi Point. It passed without any official reports. It was prob- ably centered along the along the Hot Springs Fault. Earthquakes are caused by the abrupt rock movement along a fault. This causes the rocks to fracture. which often remains open and allows for heated water to rise to the surface. This appears to he the case for Hot Springs Fault. which gets its name for creating the Marble Hot Springs located in the west-central portion of Sierra Valley. A M 2.6 temblor was recorded northeast of Red Bluff near Dales. = With Holiday Season approaching, remember that earthquake safety sup- plies make great life-saving gifts.
