Summary and Conclusion

The towns of Elsinore and Monore are situated near the pivot of the great Sevier rift. Intense movements have occurred along this zone in somewhat recent geological times. The earthquakes of September 29 and October 1, 1921, were undoubtedly initiated by movements on one or more of the various planes of this fault zone. While it is undoubtedly true that the growth of the High Plateaus has practically ceased, and, therefore, that displacements on the Sevier fault are largely past, yet further recurrences are by no means improbable.
