Chapter 7: MS Earthquakes

Difficulty Level: At Grade Created by: CK-12

After the 1906 San Francisco earthquake, much of the city was destroyed. Besides the loss of buildings to ground shaking, a massive fire after the quake burned down much of what was left. The experiences people gain from earthquakes like these allow engineers and city planners to create safer buildings. Earthquakes will always happen. The damage that is done to property and lives can be changed.
