4.1 magnitude temblor rattles nerves in Lake Almanor area

A little more than two weeks after a 5.5 magnitude earthquake rocked the Lake Almanor area, a 4.1 jolt awakened residents in the wee hours of this morning, May 26. Residents in various parts of the county reported receiving the alerts on their phones, while those closer to the temblor felt it.

The magnitude 4.1 event occurred at 4:26 a.m. today.
Distance from Chester – 11 km (7 miles) SE (134 degrees)
Greenville  – 19 km (12 miles) NW (304 degrees)
Quincy – 37 km (23 miles) NNW (334 degrees)
East Quincy – 39 km (24 miles) NNW (329 degrees)

In recent days, the activity following the original May 11 jolt seemed to be waning. According the US Geological Survey recent activity was as follows:

May 22: a 2.1 temblor at 10:30 p.m.

May 23: a 2.9 temblor at 7:15 p.m.

May 24: a 1.4 temblor at 7: 20 p.m.

May 25: no recorded activity

But then this morning, May 26, came a 4.1 followed by four aftershocks ranging from 2.0 to 2.4 as of 11 a.m.

The May 11 quake resulted in widespread breakage issues in homes and businesses throughout the Chester/Lake Almanor area, but there were no injuries reported. Caltrans reported no damage to bridges and roadways.
