In 1968 the Borrego Mountain quake struck at Mw 6.5. It was the largest and most damaging quake to have hit southern California since the Kern County earthquake, 16 years earlier. It was felt as far away as Las Vegas, Fresno, and even Yosemite Valley. The quake caused damage across most of southern California -- power lines were severed in San Diego County, plaster cracked in Los Angeles, and the Queen Mary, in drydock at Long Beach, rocked back and forth on its keel blocks for 5 minutes.
