Strong-motion records were recovered from stations of the California Strong Motion Instrumentation Program (CSMIP) following the Whittier earthquake of October 1, (also known as the Whittier Narrows earthquake).

Sixty-three of those stations were ground-response stations.

[A Gerald Brady; P N Mork; L C Seekins; Geological Survey (U.S.)]. The Whittier Narrows earthquake was recorded by more strong motion instruments than any other earthquake [Brady et al., ; Shakal et al., ; Trifunac, ].

These records provide for the first time a contour map of strong ground motions in the Los Angeles basin and San Fernando Valley [Trifunac, ]. They also illustrate. CSMIP STRONG-MOTION RECORDS FROM THE WHITTIER, CALIFORNIA EARTHQUAKE OF 1 OCTOBER [A.F., et al.

If the Whittier Narrows earthquake is the characteristic earthquake along the km-long anticlinorium, then recurrence intervals are estimated to be years.

The Whittier Narrows earthquake occurred in the southern San Gabriel Valley and surrounding communities of southern California at a.m. PDT on October 1. The moderate magnitude blind thrust earthquake was centered several miles north of Whittier in the town of Rosemead, had a relatively shallow depth, and was felt throughout southern California and Areas affected: Greater Los Angeles Area.

The Whittier Narrows earthquake sequence (local magnitude, ML=), which caused over $million damage, indicates that assessments of earthquake hazards in the Los Angeles metropolitan area may be underestimated.

October 1, was the th day of the year in the Gregorian calendar. There were 91 days remaining until the end of the year. The day of the week was Thursday. If you are trying to learn Japanese then this day of the week in Japanese is Mokuyōbi.

A person born on this day will be 32 years old today. Although the written history of California is not long, records of earthquakes exist that affected the Spanish missions that were constructed beginning in the late 18th century. Those records ceased when the missions were secularized inand from that point until the California Gold Rush in the s, records were sparse.

Other sources for the occurrence of earthquakes. The Whittier Narrows (), Loma Prieta () and Hector Mine () quakes occurred in the month of October but earthquakes can occur all.

October 1, @ am-A M quake located in the Whittier Narrows region that lasted about 20 seconds and was centered near the intersection of Rosemead Blvd. and San Gabriel Blvd. Much of the damage occurred in the older Uptown Whittier area, but there was major damage throughout the Los Angeles Basin, especially in the cities of Pasadena.

The South Napa earthquake occurred in the North San Francisco Bay Area on August 24 at Pacific Daylight on the moment magnitude scale and with a maximum Mercalli intensity of VIII (Severe), the event was the largest in the San Francisco Bay Area since the Loma Prieta epicenter of the earthquake was located to the south Magnitude: Mw.earthquake at locations throughout southern California.

Five other moderate-sized mainshock-aftershock sequences have occurred in the general vicinity of the Chino Hills earth-quake since The largest event was the Whittier Narrows earthquake of 1 Octoberwhich was located about 30 km west-northwest and had a magnitude of The Rinaldi record of the Northridge earthquake is one of the most important strong motion records in earthquake engineering (largest recorded horizontal peak ground velocity in the western United States, ∼ cm/s).
