if i interupt in school we learnt that the magnitude was 7.7 therefore the earthquake was called the greatearthquake
The moment magnitude of the 1906 earthquake in San Francisco was estimated to be between 7.7 and 7.9 by the US Geological Survey.
The moment magnitude of the 1906 earthquake in San Francisco was estimated to be between 7.7 and 7.9 by the US Geological Survey. Other unverified sources suggest the magnitude was 8.3.
7.9 magnitude of 1906 quake.
The San Francisco earthquake in 1906 was magnitude 7.8.
Yes. The 1906 earthquake in San Francisco was a 7.8
The US Geological Survey reports that the moment magnitude of the 1906 San Francisco earthquake was between 7.7 and 7.9 and had a duration of between 45 and 60 seconds.
The earthquake was triggered by a slip along the SanAndreas fault
Movement of the San Andreas fault.
Only 63 deaths were recorded as a result of the 1989 San Francisco earthquake, but over 3,500 people were injured.
San Francisco has suffered two notable earthquakes. One in 1906 and the other (the Loma Prieta earthquake) in 1989.
The epicenter of the 1989 San Francisco was located in the Santa Cruz mountains. It was about 60 miles south of the city.
It was San Francisco that had the earthquake.
It started at 5:04pm on the 17th October 1989
It happened on Tuesday the 17th of October 1989.
approximately 15 seconds
The name of the San Francisco earthquake that happened in 1906 is called the Great San Francisco earthquake.
The Alaska earthquake of 1964 had a magnitude of 9.2, compared with the 1906 SF earthquake's magnitude of 7.8. A 9.2 earthquake releases approximately 500 billion times the energy of a magnitude 7.8.
Seattle is located very close to the Cascadia subduction zone, where earthquakes of magnitude 9.0 have occurred in the past. The San Andreas fault which bypasses San Francisco, is not capable of such an earthquake due to it being a transform fault, where the maximum magnitude would be about 7.8-8.0.
The 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake caused major damage to San Francisco.
In 1906 the earthquake was 7.9 in San Francisco
the answer is SAN FRANCISCO
A magnitude 7.9 earthquake occured at in San Francisco at 5:12 a.m. on Wednesday, April 18, 1906.
The San Francisco earthquake was caused by a rift in the San Andreas fault.
The Great 1906 San Francisco earthquake.
My data says that the 1964 Anchorage, Alaska earthquake measured a 9.2 Mw, while the 1906 San Francisco earthquake was a 7.8 Ms
