The effects of the earthquake upon building and other above ground structures are briefly discussed. 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. Today is the 40th Anniversary of the February 9, San Fernando Valley Earthquake in southern California where I grew up. I was almost 11 years old at the time and the oldest of 5 daughters a & 2.
