Plumas Co quake causes more than $1 million in damage


QUINCY, Calif. (AP) - Officials in a part of northeastern California that was shaken by a magnitude-5.7 earthquake last week are estimating that the temblor caused more than $1 million in damage. Plumas County Office of Emergency Services Director Jerry Sipe said Tuesday that more than 50 homes in the Lake Almanor basin were damaged during the quake on Thursday night. Sipe says broken and toppled chimneys were the most common type of damage, but that the quake also broke decks, porches and windows. Some homes suffered flooding and water damage, and one was lifted off its foundation. The earthquake also ruptured a tank that supplies residential drinking water, but an advisory instructing customers to boil their drinking water was lifted over the weekend.
