I love ivpressonline. I lived in Imperial Valley for 60 years. We still have 600 acres there. I was not in Imperial Valley in 1892 when the 7.8 quake hit. I think that may only be a guess. I'm not sure if they had the Richter scale in 1892.
I was there in the 1940 and 1979 quakes. In my opinion Joe R. Buzo should be ashamed of himself, telling these stories, trying to scare people. At El Centro Motors we only slowed down and went on with our work.
