Southern portion.  My figures show Category B (barely - per 2000 IBC).

I didn't intend to understate the seismic situation - was just wanting to
get some input on the concept here.

Another question (from email) asked the orientation of the footing
'block' -- the 14' dimension is oriented along the 'wall' (such that it
is) - perpendicular to the horizontal thrust.

I appreciate all the responses (public and private).  It's one of the really
nice things about this listserve.
