San Andreas Fault Moves It's Fingers Through The Ground

One hundred years ago today, at about this time (CA time) the Great Quake rattled the city. By the time the earthquake and subsequent fire were over, 3,000 people were dead.

An interesting fact about this tragedy is that the upper class illegally took control of the city government immediately after the temblor.
