Over 80% ofwas destroyed
Reconstruction costs topped $50 million after the 1906 San Francisco earthquake. The same reconstruction costs would be more than $20 billion today.
The overall cost of the damage from the 1906 San Francisco earthquake was estimated at the time to be around $400,000,000.
The earthquake and fire of San Francisco happened on April 18th, 1906. there was much damage done to the city of San Fran. (You can go to Wikipedia for more information.)
They didn't. The earthquake struck without any warning. Back in 1906 scientists had no idea how to predict eathquakes, and we aren't much better off today.
The S F earthquake of 1906 totally devastated parts of the city. There have been several since, but the next big one is still awaited.
more than a 100 acres of San Francisco
It happened in 1906. It was due to the fact that much of California is situated on the San Andreas Fault. Earthquakes happen in California regularly, though there hasn't been one as big as the 1906 one since then. It could happen at any time.
it destroyed many home
3 biollion pounds exhanged.
yes,but only if the earthquake is as big as the world and goes around the world but the small earthquakes will not do so much damage
Many earthquakes have been accompanied by extensive fire damage. In modern times, 2 come to my mind. In the San Francisco quake of 1906, the resulting fire did arguably as much damage as the quake itself. The Tokyo 1923 earthquake also had extensive associated fire damage.
Depends on the strength and where the epicenter is located. Earthquakes happen all the time, but they are small and we don't feel them. When a big one happens it can destroy everything located in a area. Look at pictures of the 1906 San Francisco quake and the destruction or the recent one in Japan. In Italy a few months ago a village hundreds of years old was destroyed and lives lost.
it cost them 6 billion dollars to repair
San Francisco was originally built near Salt Lake City, Utah....no, I'm pulling your leg. San Fran was built pretty much where it is now - on the peninsula west of Oakland and south of Marin County. It was pretty much rebuilt there after the 1906 Earthquake/Fire as well.
This is a statement you need to ask a question to get an answer.
80 square miles. alot of cities and surrounding towns. the earthquakes epicenter was at the north east coast of Honshu Island.
This would create an earthquake, and a subsequent tsunami that would destroy much of the west coast and southern Alaska.
to cheat on a test: you have to look over on the smart kids paper when the eater is not looking. you will get at least a B+ if you did not study Thanks!
in Greek, they believe that zues creates a earthquake under sea to make a tidle wave (tsunami). and destroy much land that is valuable to Greeks. That is why they praise him and remember him.
Nearly 400 people till now are dead. However, the casualties may increase from time to time. This question needs to be updated .
