DECEMBER 21, 1932 (M=7.2)
[c6, p167]

The second historical surface-faulting event in the central Nevada seismic zone on December 21, 1932, produced a discontinuous zone of surface faulting and fissures in the valleys west and north of Cedar Mountain (Gianella and Callaghan, 1934). Within the 60-km-long, North-northwest-trending zone where faulting was observed, most breaks struck east of north and showed clear evidence of right-lateral displacements ( Figure 6.11).
