A tiny earthquake, measuring 2.7 on the Richter scale, took a swipe at Mammoth Thursday morning. The normal rule of thumb is that it takes a 3.0 mg quake to feel it.
No damage or injuries were reported.
The mini-quake rolled through at 9:12 a.m., at a depth of 4.9 miles. The epicenter was one mile East-Southeast of Mammoth.
The Mammoth Lakes dining scene will change dramatically this winter with the opening of "Campo Mammoth", the newest offering by acclaimed chef Mark Estee, according to a news release issued by Mammoth Mountain Ski Area Wednesday night.
With Campo Reno named one of Esquireâ€™s best new restaurants in America, the new Mammoth location, in the old Hyde space, will introduce Esteeâ€™s commitment to organic and seasonal ingredients as well as an emphasis on items that lend themselves well to families and to skiers and boarders in search of aprÃ¨s ski fare.
