how likely is a big one in utah
HOW LIKELY IS A “BIG ONE” IN UTAH?

Prob. [ M 6.5 or greater ] somewhere in the Wasatch Front

Area during the next 50 years, assuming EQs are random… P50 = 34% (annual probability = 1 in 150)

Somewhere on one of the Wasatch fault’s central segments during the next 50 yrs, assuming EQs are random… P50 = 14% (annual probability = 1 in 350)

On the Salt Lake City segment of the Wasatch fault,

assuming various models… P50 = 4 – 8 %

(annual probability = 1 in 600 to 1 in 1300)
