Structure Information Summary
Overall, the population in this region resides in structures that are highly resistant to earthquake shaking, though some vulnerable structures exist.
Historical Earthquakes (with MMI)
A magnitude 5.8 earthquake 365 km northwest of this one struck the United States on February 3, 1994 (UTC), with estimated population exposures of 1,000 at intensity VIII and 4,000 at intensity VII, with no reported fatalities.

PAGER content is automatically generated, and only considers losses due to structural damage. Limitations of input data, shaking estimates, and loss models may add uncertainty. PAGER results are generally available within 30 minutes of the earthquake’s occurrence. However, information on the extent of shaking will be uncertain in the minutes and hours following an earthquake and typically improves as additional sensor data and reported intensities are acquired and incorporated into models of the earthquake's source. Users of PAGER estimates should account for uncertainty and always seek the most current PAGER release for any earthquake.
