Vandals damage seismic station

Vandals shot up the solar power panel and ripped out the wiring for the power and communications of one of the 8 earthquake monitors that form the newly created Arizona Integrated Seismic Network. Station 113A, off I-8, east of Yuma looks like it was hit by 12-gauge small bird cartridges [right].

AZGS and IRIS staff got the station back in operation last Friday after it was offline for about 10 days.

Police are treating the damage as a felony.
