This seismic tremor is a standout amongst the most crushing ever. The tremor and coming about flames brought on an expected 3,000 passings and $524 million in property misfortune. Harm in San Francisco coming about just from the seismic tremor was assessed at $20 million; outside the city, it was evaluated at $4 million. The sensible span of the shaking in San Francisco was around 1 minute.

The seismic tremor harmed structures and structures in all parts of the city and district of San Francisco, albeit over a significant part of the zone, the harm was moderate in sum and character. Most smokestacks toppled or were severely broken. In the business region, which was based on ground made by filling in the inlet of Yerba Buena, asphalts were clasped, angled, and fissured; block and edge places of normal development were harmed widely or annihilated; sewers and water mains were broken; and streetcar tracks were bowed into wavelike structures.
San Francisco, California
On or close to the San Andreas shortcoming, structures were annihilated (one was torn separated), and trees were thumped to the ground. The surface of the ground was torn and hurled into wrinkle like edges. Streets crossing the faultline were closed, and pipelines were broken. One pipeline that conveyed water from San Andreas Lake to San Francisco was broken, stopping the water supply to the city. The flames that lighted not long after the onset of the seismic tremor immediately seethed through the city as a result of the absence of water to control them. They wrecked a substantial piece of San Francisco and increased the misfortune at Fort Bragg and Santa Rosa.

This quake brought about the most lengthly burst of a deficiency that has been seen in the bordering United States. The dislodging of the San Andreas Fault was seen over a separation of 300 kilometers from San Juan Bautista to Point Arena, where is goes out to ocean. Extra uprooting was watched more distant north at Shelter Cove in Humbolt County, and, accepting the break was consistent, the aggregate length of crack would augment 430 kilometers. The biggest flat dislodging - 6.4 meters - happened close Point Reyes Station in Marin County.

In regions where separation of wall and streets demonstrated the measure of ground development, movements of 3 to 4.5 meters were basic. Close Point Arena, in Mendocino County, a wall and a line of trees were dislodged very nearly 5 meters. At Wright's Station, in Santa Clara County, a parallel uprooting of 1.4 meters was watched. Vertical dislodging of as much as 0.9 meters was seen close Fort Ross in Sonoma County. Vertical removal was not recognized toward the south end of the issue.

In spite of the fact that Santa Rosa lies around 30 kilometers from the San Andreas flaw, harm to property was serious, and 50 individuals were murdered. The seismic tremor likewise was extreme in the Los Banos territory of the western San Joaquin Valley, where the MM power more than 48 kilometers from the deficiency zone was IX. Santa Clause Rosa lies straightforwardly inland from the district of most noteworthy movement on the San Andreas flaw.

Trees influenced viciously, and some were severed over the ground or tossed down. The water in springs and artesian wells either expanded or diminished its stream. A couple sand craterlets shaped in zones where water was shot out through splits or crevices.

The locale of damaging power stretched out over a separation of 600 kilometers. The aggregate felt range included a large portion of California and parts of western Nevada and southern Oregon. The most extreme power of XI depended on geologic impacts, however the most astounding force in light of harm was IX. A few foreshocks presumably happened, and numerous delayed repercussions were accounted for, some of which were extreme.
