Arizona is "deforming'' at a much slower rate than California, lessening the risk of a major earthquake, but some quakes are inevitable, Arrowsmith said. This worldwide number is on par with prior year averages of about 40 earthquakes per day of magnitude 4.0, or about 14,500 annually. Once I realized I had felt my first earthquake (in 36 years of living here), I went back to the TV to check out the news.
The 1 December 2014 moment magnitude (M w) 4.7 Arizona earthquake occurred 13 km southwest of the city of Flagstaff, Arizona.Flagstaff is located within the northern Arizona seismic belt and the San Francisco volcanic field. 10.13.2015 Earthquakes may be rare in Arizona, but they do happen.
It caused minor structural damage in Fredonia, AZ and Kanab, UT (chimneys, walls, windows, dishes falling from shelves). On May 5, 2015, a small earthquake just north of Sedona rattled parts of Yavapai and Coconino counties. The United States Geological Survey says that 3 small earthquakes hit the area of Black Canyon City beginning at around 9:30 p.m. Sunday night.
My Turn: Earthquakes threaten Arizona (and that's not all) Lee Allison, AZ I See It Published 6:35 p.m. MT Nov. 14, 2015 Geologist: Arizona can (and has) fallen victim to plenty of geologic hazards.
Fortunately, that was not the case. A 4.1 magnitude earthquake shook the valley near Black Canyon City late Sunday night.
That was on July 7, 1959.
USGS tell news that a 3.1 magnitude Arizona movement today just hit at 3:21 pm PST today. "Arizona is changing shape. Most important Earthquake Data: Magnitude : 3.2.
Updated: Sat, 23 May 09:04 UTC (GMT) Time: Mag. And as I learned, although they are rare, and never that large, we do indeed have earthquakes in this state.
Hundreds occur in and around the state each year. The largest earthquake ever recorded in Arizona was magnitude 5.60, with an epicenter close to the Arizona-Utah border. Depth (Hypocenter) : 5 km. A rare rockslide at Mather Point in the Grand Canyon was attributed to the shock.
