The effects of the earthquake upon building and other above ground structures are briefly discussed. San Fernando (California) Earthquake Archive. 2/09 UTC N W 5km deep Ms=, San Fernando, California. The death toll of this earthquake was ab but the property damage was enormous. The San Fernando earthquake has been extensively studied by many seismologists, geologists, and earthquake engineers.

    San Fernando has had: (M or greater) 1 earthquake in the past 24 hours 8 earthquakes in the past 7 days; 27 earthquakes in the past 30 days; earthquakes in the past days. Bottom line: the Sylmar quake in Los Angeles produced the most destructive power of any earthquake in California since the Fort Tejon quake in (Richter ). The quake lasted technically for 12 seconds – it felt like a lot more than that! – and caused $ million damage [in dollars, that would be about $ billion in

    The San Fernando earthquake, also known as Sylmar earthquake, struck the San Fernando Valley near Sylmar at a.m. PST on February 9, , with a magnitude of Rescue efforts at. The accuracy of teleseismic estimates of moment, fault area, dislocation and stress drop was tested for the case of a thrust fault: the San Fernando, California, earthquake of February 9, Author: Mihailo Trifunac.
