Six seismic events occurred during 1981 in the vicinity of Scottsville, Virginia. Of these, the three largest (mb (Lg) = 3.4, 3.2, and 2.9) occurred on February 11, 1981, within a period of eight minutes. The largest event was felt over a 900 km2 area and had a maximum intensity of IV (MM). These events may define a planar source volume at a depth of between 5 and 10 km that strikes N40°E and dips steeply to the southeast.
