But Utah Expert Says Danger Exists Wednesday. April 9. 1975. THE HERALD. Provo, Utah-Page 25 Earthquake Report Called "Alarmist' • • .... i ....„.,.. _ >ji_- "U/o n«>H tn hire some aron' SALT LAKE CITY (UPI) Utah earthquake expert Kenneth L Cook Tuesday branded as "alarmist" a U.S. Geological Survey warning that the populous Wasatch Front would someday be hit by a major tremor Dr. Al Rogers, a USGS geophysicist who headed the survey's team which checked the March 27 quake along the Utah- Idaho line, said Monday that future temblers along the Wasatch fault would be more destructive because they would hit in built up areas. "Rogers' report is somewhat alarmist," Cook told Gov. Calvin L Hampton in a special briefing at the Capitol. "We all know that we live in an earthquake zone. We should be aware of that and not bury our heads in the sand like ostriches." Cook, director of the University of Utah seismological station, said people will just have to live with the potential earthquake danger and authorities must make sure buildings along the front are built to code. The Utah geophysicist said the Salt Lake Valley has a Zone 3 classification — the same earthquake potential as San Francisco, Los Angeles and other points along California's San Andreas fault. Cook asked Rampton for an emergency appropriation of $10,000 to analyze data from last month's quake. Rampton said he would provide $5,000 from his emergency fund and persuade the university to come up with the remainder from its budget. Cook said the university lab and the USGS had circled the epicenter of the quake with 11 seismographs. He said they were studying the thousands of aftershocks, which are still occurring at a rate of 10 per hour nearly two weeks after the big jolt. "We need to hire some emergency personnel to analyze what happened," Cook said. "Measuring these shocks is for the safety and welfare of the public." He said one seismograph in Big Cottonwood showed an increase in strain along the fault after the quake near Malad City, Idaho, and that study of other monitors was needed to determine the extend of the build-up of stress. The seismologist said experts aren't sure what such a buildup portends. Cook said the last really big quake along the Wasatch fault —which runs north from Payson in Utah County, through populous Salt Lake, Davis and Weber Counties, and then north 31 through Box Elder County to Idaho—cocurred 400 years ago. He said the university's monitoring system records about 50 tiny quakes along the fault each month.
