The San Francisco earthquake was centered along the San Andreas Fault and affected a huge area. It was felt all the way from Coos Bay, Oregon, to Los Angeles, California, and as far east as central Nevada.
In San Francisco, fires raged for four days across nearly a quarter of the city, including the entire downtown area. Hundreds of people were trapped and killed when tenement houses in the South of Market area collapsed. In this film, you see the refugees, people who lost their homes in the earthquake and fire, commuting across the bay between San Francisco and Oakland, where they found temporary lodging.
