Page - First, points on opposite sides of the fault moved in opposite directions, those to the eastward of the fault in a southerly direction, and those to the westward in a northerly direction. Second, the displacements of all points were approximately parallel to the fault.

Third, the displacements on each, side of the fault were less the greater the distance of the displaced points from. The San Fernando earthquake (also known as the Sylmar earthquake) occurred in the early morning of February 9 in the foothills of the San Gabriel Mountains in southern California.
