UPI Telephoto Future Utah Quake Chances? Not Reasuring, Says Survey SALT LAKE CITY (UPI) The earthquake which rattled northern Utah and southern Idaho last month, says the U. S. Geological Survey, may just be a warning of things to come. And silence from the bowels of the earth is just as ominous. "The area has produced at least six strong earthquakes of magnitude six or larger (on the Richter scale) this century and will undoubtedly produce more in the future," said Dr. Al Rogers, the USGS geophysicist leading the survey's earthquake team in Utah. "We can expect future earthquakes to be more de- structive, however, because more and more buildings and people are moving into areas that are potentially unsafe because of earthquake-related hazards." The USGS also said, in a report on last month's quake, that parts of the 500-mile long Wasatch Fault have not moved in decades, which the agency labeled "a matter of considerable concern because the fault may be storing stresses which could eventually result in a major earthquake." The survey quoted a study completed last year on northern Utah faults, which concluded, Family Learns of Death Of Two Vietnam Adoptees SALT LAKE CITY (UPI) Last Christmas the Dr. Patrick Schow family learned there were two young Vietnamese orphans available for adoption and they could have them both. Sunday the Schows learned the two were among the more than 100 refugee children killed in the crash of a huge C-5-A cargo plane carrying them to their new American homes. The family, including three children, waited anxiously for word of the fate of the two boys in the Friday tragedy. It came before sunrise Sunday morning. The family, recently moved here from Los Angeles, was shattered by the news. "We had sent them Valentines," said Lois Schow. For the orphans, 7-year-old Ha Van Thanh and 6-year-old Nguyen Hoang, the flight to America lasted just half an hour. That's how long the plane carrying more than 300 persons was in the air before it crashed. Man Slain Pedestrian In Ogden Argument OGDEN (UPI) — A two hour argument at a 25th St., cafe has left one man dead and another cliarged with murder. Police said Herman 0. Barela,38, of Ogden, was shot with a .22 caliber pistol about 2:20Sunday afternoon. Charged with criminal homicide in the shooting was Billie Joe Vigil,38. He was scheduled to be arraigned this morning in City Court on a charge of criminal homicide and was being held without bail. In Ogden Dies Crossing Road PLEASANT VIEW, Utah (UPI) —An Ogden man was struck and killed by a car Sunday as he crossed State Road 50. The Utah Highway Patrol identified the victim as Kugene R. Martinez, 28. The UHP said Martinez left a tavern shortly after midnight, crossed the road and walked into the path of a car driven by Douglas R. Coleman, 23, BrighamCity. Martinez was dead on arrival at a local hospital. Search Includes Hikers As Well as Lost Plane MONTICELLO, Utah (UPI) Authorities in southern Utah, already working against bad weather and rugged terrain to find a missing light plane, say they may be looking for five errant backpackers as well. San Juan County Sheriff Rigby Wright said Sunday he had flown over the remote mountains near Lake Powell looking for the five, but had not sighted them. Wright said he was informed the five had been sighted by either a scenic flight out of Page, Ariz., or one of the Utah Civil Air Patrol planes searching for a downed craft in the same general area. He said he was unsure exactly where the sighting report originated. But Wright said he flew into the area south of Rainbow Bridge on Lake Powell —an area he .described as '<remote as hell" —Saturday in an effort to find the backpackers. He said bad winds kept him from descending below about 1,000 feet, and he saw no one. Wright said he would probably go back into the area this week, when the weather cleared. In the interim, he said, the Coconino County, Ariz., Sheriffs Office intended to check into the reported sighting of the hikers. "It's thousands of acres of straight up-and-down rocks in there," Wright said. "It's a terrible place to be. You have to walk miles to go a few hundred feet." The backpackers report came as the search for a missing doctor and his light plane went into its second week. "About three-quarters of a million people, or about 85 per cent of Utah's population, live within or along the active Wasatch Fault zone, presenting a high probability for serious damage and injury as a result of future strong earthquakes.'' The study report said extensive damage could result even from a moderate quake, because of population density along the high-danger area. "Cities on or near these faults that can expect to be affected by future earthquakes include Salt Lake City, Provo, Orem, Springville, Ogden and Brigham City. "Structures now located astride these active faults include apartment buildings, businesses and homes, as well as electrical lines and water and gas pipelines, all of which will no doubt be severely damaged or destroyed in the event of surface rupturing." The report added that the Wasatch and Cache Valley faults are likely to generate large earthquakes in the future, and "many of these large earthquakes will be accompanied by surface rupturing.'' The USGS report was released less than two weeks after a quake measuring 6.3 on the Richter Scale rocked the Utah-Idaho state line March 27. Damage from that quake was minimal, and no injuries were reported. It was centered about three miles south of the Utah-Idaho line, according to the USGS. It was the largest in the continental United States since the 1971 quake in Los Angeles, which killed 65 persons, injured 1,000 and caused more than $1 billion damages. The USGS said the March 27 quake was preceded by a foreshock of 4.5 a day earlier, and followed by at least 500 after shocks reaching a magnitude of 4.7. It said aftershocks continue at a rate of 30 to 40 per day. "Because of the severity of the March 27 quake," the USGS said, "and the large number of aftershocks that continue to shake the area, USGS and University of Utah scientists have deployed a network of seismometers around the quake center near Malad City, Idaho." USGS scientists said their investigation immediately after the quake found no evidence of ground breakage, rockslides, dammed streams or damaged reservoirs or irrigation canals —except for cracks in frozen mud and snow. They said earthquakes of the magnitude of the March 27 temblor usually result in ground breakage. Of the seisrnographic study of the quake's aftereffects, Rogers said, "A special effort will be made to locate the aftershocks precisely and thus give us a better understanding of the area's future earthquake potential, as well as its geologic and tectonic structure. "At the same time, detailed studies of the aftershocks can help determine the area's particular response to ground snaking and other earthquake forces and thus give us some idea of the risks and hazards associated with future earthquakes."- It's Freezer-Stocking Time!
