The US Geological Survey has lowered the intensity of the earthquake to M3.8.
Original post 6:30 a.m. - A M4.1 earthquake was felt at 6:25 a.m. Sunday morning in Plumas, Lassen and Sierra counties. The epicenter was in a similar location as the quake last Wednesday, this time it was nine miles SSE from Whitehawk, CA (39.604°N, 120.473°W), with a depth of 8.7 miles. This again puts the epicenter in Sierra County.
It might be considered a long shot, but Plumas County could get a new state-of-the-art $20 million jail for $1 million.
Sheriff Greg Hagwood outlined the possibility for the Board of Supervisors during a meeting Tuesday, Oct. 18.
