Hot spring in the Paso Robles City Hall Parking lot. Excavation was undertaken in an effort to find reported capped well. No well was found and instead a fissure was found and assistance was being sought from geotechnical consultants on how to stem the flow. Photo taken 12/27/03 by R. Wilson.

slide4

Small rockfall south of Lakeview Drive viewed from bridge crossing Las Tablas Creek. Photo taken 12/26/03 by T. McCrink.

slide5

Possibly re-activated portion of an intermittently active earth flow on a mature landslide complex. View to the west from above Lakeview Drive west of Franklin Creek. Photo taken 12/26/03 by T. McCrink.

slide6

Pair of lateral spread fissures, forming a small graben, pass beneath and severely damaged house in distance. View looking to southwest from alley between Pacific Blvd. And Norswing Dr., south of Coolidge in Oceano. Movement is to the right. Photo taken 12/27/03 by R. Wilson.

slide8

Lateral spreading along Norswing Dr. in Oceano, viewed to the north. Fissures in street, along curb, and in driveway have been patched. Fissures reported to have been 6 inches wide and as much as 18 inches deep. Movement is to the left toward a lagoon. Photo taken 12/27/03 by R. Wilson.

slide9

Sidewalk thrust over curb along Norswing Dr. in Oceano, view to the north. The houses on the right moved with the lateral spread block to the left toward the lagoon. Photo taken 12/27/03 by R. Wilson.
