100 Years Ago Today: San Fransisco Earthquake 04-18-06 music and audio
Produced by: Skidmark Bob
April 18th 1906 -- US: San Francisco Earthquake destroys much of Frisco. Combined with the ensuing fire, 500-700 died & another 250,000 left homeless. Damages totaled over $500 million from the quake, estimated at 7.9-8.3 on the (yet-to-be devised) Richter Scale.
"I asked a man standing next to me what happened. Before he could answer a thousand bricks fell on him & he was killed. A woman threw her arms around my neck. I pushed her away & fled. All around me buildings were rocking & flames shooting. As I ran, people on all sides were crying , praying & calling for help. I thought the end of the world had come."
