      The L.A. Times is a leading source of breaking news, entertainment, sports, politics, and more for Southern California and the world. The shaking was felt from Los Angeles, California, in the south to Coos Bay, Oregon, in the north. Damage was severe in San Francisco and in other towns situated near the fault, including San Jose, Salinas, and Santa Rosa. At least people were killed. In San Francisco the earthquake started a fire that destroyed the central business district.

    Earthquake epicenters occur mostly along tectonic plate boundaries, and especially on the Pacific Ring of Fire. Global plate tectonic movement An earthquake (also known as a quake, tremor or temblor) is the shaking of the surface of the Earth resulting from a sudden release of energy in the Earth 's lithosphere that creates seismic waves. Earthquakes can range in size from those that are so. The great earthquake broke loose some 20 to 25 seconds later, with an epicenter near San Francisco. Violent shocks punctuated the strong shaking which lasted some 45 to 60 seconds. The earthquake was felt from southern Oregon to south of Los Angeles and inland as far as central Nevada.

Most earthquake loss studies use a probabilistic approach in which predicted damages in various categories of structure and facilities in the region in concern are estimated and added together to obtain a total loss for particular intensity ranges. Such an approach requires a detailed inventory database of the structures and facilities in the region, which is not always readily available in.

San Francisco has been devastated by an earthquake. The shock occurred shortly after five o'clock yesterday morning, and lasted three minutes. California has had an average of about one M > 6 event every 2 to 3 years and losses from many of this century’s large earthquakes have resulted in several billions of dollars in damage (e.g., San Francisco earthquake, Long Beach earthquake- M, San Fernando earthquake, Loma Prieta earthquake, and Northridge.

Prior to that year, San Francisco was California’s largest city (population approx. ,), but the earthquake and fire aftermath produced considerable migration south to Los Angeles as the U.S. population moved westward, approximately doubling the population fromto overin the City in just four years.

In the USA, the San Francisco earthquake caused deaths; the San Fernando earthquake, 64; and the Loma Prieta that flattened the Nimmitz Freeway, The decreasing number of deaths despite increasing population densities is a testament to.

But the failure of the St. Francis Dam remains an urgent lesson about our human limits, all but forgotten Over 70% of the projected loss is contributed by three MSA’s: Los Angeles-Long Beach-Santa Ana, San Francisco-Oakland-Fremont, and Riverside-San Bernardino-Ontario.

The San Fernando earthquake (also known as the Sylmar earthquake) occurred in the early morning of February 9 in the foothills of the San Gabriel Mountains in southern California. The unanticipated thrust earthquake had a magnitude of on the M s scale, and a maximum Mercalli intensity of XI (Extreme).The event was one in a series that affected the Los Angeles area in the late.

San Francisco earthquake ofa major earthquake and fire that destroyed s buildings and killed more than 3, people. The shaking was felt from Los Angeles in the south to Coos Bay, Oregon, in the north. Damage was severe in San Francisco and in other towns situated near the San Andreas Fault.

The Lawson Report, a study of the quake led and edited by Professor Andrew Lawson of the University of California, showed that the same San Andreas Fault which had caused the disaster in San Francisco ran close to Los Angeles as well.

Unlike other disasters such as hurricanes and tornadoes, a catastrophic earthquake can happen with little or no warning. Small and frequent tremors can occur prior to a major quake; although this is not always the case. San Francisco. Los Angeles is situated away from the fault, and even a major earthquake on San Andreas () would only cause minimal damage in LA proper.
