April 5, - A magnitude earthquake hit the Imperial Valley south of Calexico at p.m. The epicenter was 16 miles southwest of Guadalupe Victoria, Baja California, Mexico. Aftershocks as high as to rocked Seeley, California, with others at Mexicali, Ocotillo, and Calexico. quakes have been recorded since April 6, 11 AM. UTC magnitude, 17 km depth Idyllwild, California, United States magnitude earthquake Today UTC at UTC.

The Imperial Valley earthquake of 15 October offered a unique opportunity to advance the understanding of the behavior of unanchored oil storage tanks under strong motion earthquakes. Several accelerograms were recorded in the vicinity of a steam power plant and near a tank farm where some tanks suffered structural by: Earthquakes in Imperial today.

A recording obtained at the Coachella Canal Engine House No. 4 of the OctoImperial Valley earthquake shows a dominant 2 Hz frequency. This feature is very unusual and an attempt has been made to determine if the recording is real or spurious.

As the pumping station is a small heavily constructed bunker type of structure located on material of low shear wave velocity it was. Some of the fault slip associated with the Imperial Valley earthquake occurred along other than the Imperial fault and the Brawley fault zone.

More than 90 km to the north of the seismogenic fault, a km-long section of the San Andreas fault developed a discontinuous set of surficial fractures soon after the earthquake.

This set of fractures consisted of small left-stepping echelon Cited by: Imperial Valley, California, Earthquake Octo Rupture (or "mole track") on the Imperial Fault in a field south of Heber Road ( kilometers northwest of the southeast end of the fault).
