ES 02:1 (Nov 1985) The Borah Peak, ID, Earthquake of October 18, 1983

The Borah Peak, Idaho, Earthquake of October 18, 1983.

The M7.3 earthquake that struck a rural area of central Idaho caused two deaths, one injury, and damage to older brick and stone masonry structures. It was significant for its size – it was the largest magnitude seismic event in the continental United States in over two decades and was felt in all or parts of seven western states and three provinces in Canada. Observations of this event are applicable to the Wasatch and other basin and range faults. This report covers seismology, surface faulting, ground motion, liquefaction, landslides, hydrologic effects, buildings and schools, industrial facilities, lifelines, and societal response. Guest editor Lawrence D. Reaveley. 247 pp.
