Overall Storm05, this is good. I left it at start because there are a few spelling mistakes, and it needs a little more orginazation. Sure is a change from the usuall hurricanes! Juliancolton (talk) 14:29, 17 December 2007 (UTC)

I have a question regarding the 80 million tons of rock - I'm pretty sure this would equate to more than 40 cubic yards? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 204.63.232.6 (talk) 18:14, 7 July 2009 (UTC)

KVDKLMV[edit]

<DSJNHJ> Omitted the reference to mudslides in Needles. While mudslides did occur in Needles in August 1959, they were caused by a local thunderstorm and almost certainly unrelated to the earthquake (despite what the Salt Lake Tribune might report). Landslides typically require intensities (Mercalli) of at least 3 or 4 to be triggered, and it is unlikely that the Hebgen Lake earthquake was even felt as far away as Needles. Reports from Needles make no mention of an earthquake but do mention a "cloudburst" with approximately an inch of rain. http://www3.gendisasters.com/california/6254/near-needles-ca-cloudburst-causes-flooding-aug-1959

Also omitted reference to being recorded in New Zealand and elsewhere. Any earthquake larger than about magnitude 6.5 will be recorded around the world.

Omitted mention of Yellowstone being "geologically active at the time" as it is not clear what that means. Rephrased sentence about epicenter and magnitude. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 146.244.227.112 (talk) 16:54, 10 September 2009 (UTC)

Title[edit]

Looking up references for the Madison Canyon landslide, I noticed that virtually all the references (on Google Books and Scholar anyway) used "1959 Hebgen Lake earthquake". By WP:COMMONNAME, I suggest that this article is moved to that title. Mikenorton (talk) 20:39, 1 April 2014 (UTC)

I noticed the same while looking at an article for a Washington earthquake, and since I'd noticed this a few weeks, ago I went ahead and made the move. Dawnseeker2000 02:54, 30 April 2014 (UTC)
