The earthquake known as the Hector Mine Earthquake was a strike-slip earthquake that occurred in a remote part of the Mojave Desert of San Bernardino County, California just 47 miles east-southeast of Barstow, California.

The earthquake was widely felt from Los Angeles, California to Las Vegas, California; especially felt along communities that are along Historic Route 66 like Ludlow, California and Needles, California.

The earthquake did cause some cracks along some overpasses near the epicenter and caused a westbound Amtrak passenger train known as the Southwest Chief Train #3 to derail some of their tail cars.
