Summary
On April 19, 1906, San Francisco would experience an awesome reminder of the uncontrollable forces lying dormant just beneath the city. Thirty times more powerful than the temblor that decimated northern California in 1989, this earthquake measured a ground-wrenching 8.3 on the Richter scale, resulting in the worst catastrophe suffered by a North American city in the twentieth century
