San Andreas Fault The California earthquake of April 18, 1906 ranks as one of the most significant earthquakes of all time. At almost precisely 5:12 a.m., local time, a foreshock occurred with sufficient force to be felt widely throughout the San Francisco Bay area. 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. Dead - More than 3,000 Homeless - 225,000 Buildings Destroyed - 28,000 Monetary Loss - More than $400 million
