Anything indoors and unsecured will lurch across the floor or come crashing down: bookshelves, lamps, computers, cannisters of flour in the pantry. The foot 18 m concrete control tower at Anchorage International Airport was not engineered to withstand earthquake activity and collapsed, killing William George Taylor, the Federal Aviation Agency air traffic controller on duty in the tower cab at the time the earthquake began. Depending on location, they will have between ten and thirty minutes to get out. Regional Seismicity The Greenville-Mount Diablo fault, which produced the Livermore Valley earthquakes, is one of a number of active faults along the east side of the Coast Ranges. FEMA calculates that, across the region, something on the order of a million buildings—more than three thousand of them schools—will collapse or be compromised in the earthquake.

Of these stations, 21 provided strong motion records collected by CDMG following the January 24 and 26 earthquakes table 1. Redwood City, California. Wong, and H. Ruth A.

Figure 3 shows preliminary epicenter determinations for shocks for the days of January 28 and 29, Eguchi, K. Drop under a sturdy desk or table and hold on to one leg of the table or desk.

Refrigerators will walk out of kitchens, unplugging themselves and toppling over. Instruments were collected and removed from the field on February 8, Fire is the most common earthquake-related hazard, due to broken gas lines, damaged electrical lines or appliances, and previously contained fires or sparks being released.

Because the earthquake of January 26 occurred outside of established aftershock arrays, the CDMG goal was to instrument the area in a manner that could contribute to aftershock studies of the earthquake of January 24, permit rapid separation of events occurring in the two epicentral areas, and allow investigations of shocks originating in the southern epicentral area.
