The magnitude-6.2 and magnitude-5.7 earthquakes struck at the junction of several faults, in a location where strong shaking is expected over a person’s lifetime. In this map, sediment-filled basins would be expected to experience more intense shaking than the highlands. The expected shaking is from Temblor’s PUSH (Probabilistic Uniform Seismic Hazards) model, which is available worldwide.
