Four earthquakes measured M Z.0 or stronger, the same number as last week. A brief swarm was recorded on Friday, December 19, about ten miles north of McCIoud below the southeastern flank of Mt. Shasta. It began at 9:46 a.m. with a M 2.1 jolt that was quickly followed by sev- en more quakes within the next 30 rain- utes. Two more measured as large as the first. The activity occurred about 5 miles below the surface. Mt Shasta is the most active volcano in the southern Cascade volcanic chain. It has erupted at least 23 times in the last 10,000, The most recent eruption occurred in 1786 and was ob- served from the ship of the explorer La Perouse off the California coast. Erup- tions usually occur from the central vent and are explosive, sending large volumes of ash into the air. Mud flows (lahars) and pyroclastic flows have frequently raced down the slopes and into the countryside. A massive eruption occurred in 7650 8C.
