areas. The earthquake was felt throughout South Asia, including as far away as Pakistan, Thailand and Vietnam. Earthquakes in this part of China are infrequent but not unexpected. The most recent damaging earthquakes were a magnitude-6.1 earthquake in 1989 and a magnitude-7.5 earthquake in 1933, which killed more than 9,000 people. Aftershocks of the May 12 quake are expected to continue for months. Within the first few hours following the 7.9 quake, more than 13 moderate-size earthquakes were recorded, the largest being a magnitude 6.0. The USGS is continuing to monitor earthquake activity in the area. More detailed information about these and other earthquakes around the world can be found at http://earthquake.usgs.gov/.

Disaster Earthquake Scenario Unveiled for Southern California

Scientists recently unveiled a hypothetical scenario describing how a magnitude-7.8 Southern California earthquake similar to the recent earthquake in China would impact the region. Impacts include loss of lives and massive damage to infrastructure, including critical transportation, power, and water systems. In the scenario, the earthquake would kill 1800 people, injure 50,000, cause $200 billion in damage, and have long-lasting social and economic consequences. This is the most comprehensive analysis ever of what a major Southern California earthquake would mean, and is the scientific framework for what will be the largest earthquake preparedness drill in California history, scheduled for November 13, 2008. A copy of the full technical report "The ShakeOut Scenario" is available online at http://pubs.usgs.gov/of/2008/1150, and a non-technical summary narrative is online at http://pubs.usgs.gov/circ/1324
