    magnitude earthquake UTC at Ma UTC Location: Epicenter at , km from Patzité ( miles). Landslides Significant portions of the greater San Francisco Bay region are comprised of sloping ground, and most of this land is subject to landslides and other types of slope failure. 75, landslides—ranging widely in age, size, and type and degree of activity—have been mapped within the ten county region.

Harp, E. et al. Landslides from the February 4, , Guatemala earthquake. Certain areas have more landslides than others. In our flybys, the landslides begin just south from Cape Campbell, becoming more intense south of the Clarence River, with several large (, – , m3) landslides disrupting both State Highway 1 and South Island Main Trunk railway (e.g. Ohau Point and Waipapa Bay areas).

    magnitude earthquake UTC at Decem UTC Location: Epicenter at , km from Nueva Concepción ( miles). Landslides triggered by earthquake shaking are a major concern in the Pacific Northwest. Earthquake Point in Chelan County, Washington, near Entiat is named after the ~ M7 earthquake that struck nearby. The shaking split the mountain, forming the cliff to the west and causing a huge rockslide which stopped the flow of the Columbia River.

Left lateral slip at this location was three- quarters of a meter. Possible landslides from the Nepal earthquake. The most seriously affected area from the earthquake is mountainous and remote, but there are substantial numbers of people living in the valleys and on the hillsides.

This is a typical landscape:. Further to the north the mountains become higher and the slopes longer. The locations of surface ruptures and the main shock epicenter indicate that the disastrous Guatemala earthquake of 4 February was tectonic in origin and generated mainly by slip on the Motagua fault, which has an arcuate roughly east-west trend across central Guatemala.
