Location of recent earthquakesSE of Lassen volcano (USGS data)
Friday, May 24, 2013
A shallow magnitude 5.7 earthquake occurred Fri, 24 May at 04:58 UTC km WNW of Greenville, California, about 50 km SE of Lassen volcano. Hundreds of aftershocks, some of them felt, have occurred. It is unlikely that the earthquake has any relation with the volcano. The status of Lassen volcano remains therefore at green. [more]

Lassen Scenic Byway, about 0.35 miles away from ep (1 km ESE from epicenter) / MMI V (Moderate shaking): We had just snowshoed up a ridgeline and sat down for lunch, about a third of a mile from the earthquake epicenter. Just one or two minutes after sitting down on the ridgeline my friend and I felt the entire ground shake beneath us and heard a low rumble. Both of us looked behind us to try to figure out what had happened.
