A fault plane solution was made using Byerly’s extended distance technique. The A plane has a northeast strike with a northwest dip; the B plane has a southeast strike with a southwest dip. Both solutions show mainly strike slip motion. The relation of this fault plane solution to regional tectonics is discussed. Good correlation was noted between observed building damage, tension cracks, and Recent geology; assuming the B plane represents the faulting in the earthquake.
