Lake Pillsbury has weekend earthquake

LAKE PILLSBURY – The Lake Pillsbury area was hit over the weekend by a small earthquake.

The 3.0 quake was recorded at 11:30 p.m. Saturday at a depth of 5.2 miles, according to the US Geological Survey.

The quake was centered eight miles southeast of Lake Pillsbury, 12 miles north northeast of Upper Lake and 14 miles north of Nice.

Earlier on Saturday, a 3.0 quake was recorded near Anderson Springs.

The Pillsbury area was hit by a series of earthquakes last spring.

The largest, a 4.8 quake that hit in the early morning hours of April 18, 2007, was the largest to hit the Lake Pillsbury area since 1977, according to US Geological Survey seismologist David Oppenheimer, as Lake County News reported last spring.
