Paul and Cathryn Roll have a more intimate acquaintance with the newly discovered Eureka Peak Fault than most residents near this much-shaken High Desert city: It runs right across the narrow yard between their house and swimming pool. On a hill adjacent to the Rolls' property, the fault that scientists first traced after the April 22 Joshua Tree earthquake--and became visible to all on the morning of the June 28 Landers quake--is now marked by a six-inch scarp, a vertical disruption.

The strongest aftershock of the 1992 Landers earthquake in more than two years rocked an area southeast of the desert city of Yucca Valley early Friday, causing slight damage but no injuries. Scientists at the U.S. Geological Survey and Caltech said the 12:54 a.m. temblor registered magnitude 5.0 and was centered on the Eureka Peak fault five miles southeast of Yucca Valley. It was followed by more than 100 additional aftershocks, including a 4.0 at 3:52 a.m.
