STRONG MOTION DETECTOR NOW INSTALLED IN HORSETHIEF CANYON (STATION Q0038)
The USGS installed a strong motion detector in Horsethief Canyon at my house on 3/15/2012. When a significant quake occurs nearby (about 3.5 magnitude or greater), the detector is triggered. You can track my station's triggered events by clicking on the Q0038 link above. You may also view the USGS interactive map to view all stations in the network Netquakes Map .
Use this equation to calculate approximate distance to the quakes
found on my site:
8.4 x T where T is the difference in arrival times between the P-Wave and the S-Wave.
So if T was 24 seconds, 8.4 x 24 = 201 km away.
