Aftershocks continue to rumble through Northern California

GREENVILLE, Calif. — An earthquake in far northeastern California did not injure anyone but did cause moderate damage, including to a water tank that supplies hundreds of homes with drinking water, local authorities said Friday.

Plumas County Sheriff Greg Hagwood said the magnitude-5.7 quake sent items tumbling from grocery store shelves and downed chimneys when it hit at 8:47 p.m. Thursday.

The U.S. Geological Survey's National Earthquake Center said the temblor was centered near Greenville, about 25 miles southwest of Susanville, and was felt as far away as San Francisco and in two other states. It was followed by multiple aftershocks, including a magnitude 4.9 quake that struck early Friday morning.

the epicenter was just off the south edge of Lake Almanor. Just a fact of interest since it may put it into perspective for people like me who have spent a lot of time in that area of CA. and have family near there.
