The earthquake originated on the San Andreas fault, which continues to threaten major Californian cities. It was the worst disaster to ever strike America.

The second largest earthquake to affect San Francisco, the Loma Prieta Earthquake, struck in 1989, causing damage to the city and surrounding areas.
