旧金山大地震

您能想像一大早被强震摇醒的感受吗?想像自己一大清早被摇动的地面叫醒,甚至被摇下床,滚到房间的另一端!当然,前提是您够幸运,能继续存活在这世上1906418日的清晨5:12,旧金山遇上了高达8.3级的强烈地震,整座城市几近摧毁。在地震发生前,旧金山早就是一座兴盛的城市,内有许多紧连的木造房舍及由未强化砖墙所堆砌而成的建筑物。地震开始的那一剎那,房屋倒塌、自来水管破裂,再加上一场快速蔓延至全城的大火。在这部影片中,您可以看见人们是如何修复地震及大火所造成的伤害。


Imagine being awakened early in the morning by the ground shaking so hard that you're thrown out of bed and across the room--if you're even lucky enough to be alive. On April 18, 1906, at 5:12 a.m., an earthquake of 8.3 magnitude hit San Francisco, devastating much of the city. By this time, San Francisco was already a booming city with many closely spaced wooden homes and unreinforced brick buildings. The moment the earthquake started, buildings collapsed, water mains broke, and a huge fire broke out that spread rapidly across the city. In this film, you can see how the city looked after the earthquake and fire.
