Not illustrated. 1916 edition. Excerpt: ...Submarine fault-zone seems most likely of all. See also (24) and (28). (30) A IV 1853, January 2. San Francisco-Bodega-Shasta City. Activity on the Point Arena-San Juan segment of the San Andreas fault seems most probable, --perhaps with independent movements farther north. It seems almost certain that the shock felt at Shasta must have been distinct, and have emanated from some indeterminate place of genesis. (31) A V 1853, March 1.
