Re: Seismic Zone

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
For Syracuse, if you're using the 2000 IBC/97 NEHRP:

The MCE (maximum considered earthquake) S sub A value is 19.4
The MCE S sub 1 value is 7.8

For the 2000 IRC, the category is B.

Does anyone know what the seismic zone is for Syracuse, New York?
