Editorial Reviews

At the dawn of the 20th century, San Francisco was the place to be; a hub of trade and travel, business and banking. Located just to the east of the San Andreas Fault, the bay area is interlaced with eight major earthquake-producing faults. We examine the cataclysmic earthquake that struck on April 18, 1906--it jolted the city for 50 seconds, the earth split for 270 miles, and a resulting firestorm raged for three days. Amazing photographs document the city's destruction and efforts to rebuild. But the rush to get back in business came at a price--the city was rebuilt on the same seismic hazards. Now scientists warn that if it happens again damage and casualties will be much worse. The potential catastrophe unfolds through state-of-the-art graphics with bridges collapsing, high-rise fires, and freeways destroyed. A similar seismic jolt today would lead to a mega-disaster in San Francisco, with billions of dollars in damage and casualties in the tens of thousands.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent documentary February 6, 2011
By GIJoe

I've lived in SF many times over the years but I had never seen a documentary of the earthquake. All in all, I'd still live there if I could afford it. There is no city in this country like SF. Once it gets in your blood you will always want to be there. And, it really wasn't the earthquake that ruined SF. It was the fire.
