  • Might just be me but "Causing minor injuries, the earthquake fractured walls, downed chimneys, and interfered with the stability of structures, even loosening stones." that seems to me like the injuries were sustained by buildings, you may want to switch the first part of this sentence with the preceding one.
  • In the first half of the article, you use the metric system as the main unit of measure while in the second half, it shifts to imperial. For an article pertaining to the United States, it's preferred to use imperial as the main unit.

Overall this is a nicely research and well-written article on an old earthquake. There are just a few minor concerns I have (listed above) that need to be addressed before I can pass this article. As such, I'm putting the article on hold for seven days to allow time for these to be taken care of. Cyclonebiskit (talk) 15:08, 21 February 2010 (UTC)

I think I've resolved your concerns. Tell me if there's anything else you're concerned with. ceranthor 15:30, 21 February 2010 (UTC)
