Cliff -

Sorry for the delayed response. You can look at records which have been archived at the PEER website as part of their Strong Motion Database

The data includes response spectra and time histories for displacement,
velocity and acceleration.  The description of the data and formatting
are readily understandable and you can easily obtain the info for
which you are looking. One warning is that the SMBD is mostly high-pass filtered, so you will lose most of the long-period motion, typically
including fling steps.  This means you may not get *all* of the ground
displacements.  Check the web site for info on how each record was
