April 26, 1981 Westmorland, Calipatria USA earthquake

Magnitude 6.3. Damage $1-$3 million. Subsidence was reported on several rural roads in the area. Liquefaction caused scores of mudpots, and oozing soil in nearby fields. One country road west of Westmorland collapsed, producing a 2-foot drop-off. In rural areas, unreinforced, concrete-lined irrigation canals were broken.
