San Francisco is unfortunate neighbors with the San Andreas Fault line.

The San Francisco earthquake of 1906 is remembered as one of the greatest natural disasters in America’s history. Its consequences were terrible and devastating, yet at the same time, many lessons were learned from it.

The city of San Francisco, along with a significant part of California, lies in an earthquake-prone zone caused by the active San Andreas Fault system which runs from Cape Mendocino all the way to the Mexico/U.S. border. Seismic tremors in this area are common, but the activity in 1906 was truly tragic.
