旧金山大地震的震央位于圣安地列斯断层边 (San Andreas Fault) ,影响范围广大;从库斯弯 (Coos Bay) 、奥勒岗州、洛杉矶、加州一直远达内华达州中部,都能感受到这个地震的威力。

旧金山的大火延烧了四天,几乎摧毁了近四分之一的城市,包括整个商业区在内。当位于市场街以南 (South of Market) 的房屋倒塌时,数以百计的人受困、丧生。在这部影片中,可以看到大批因地震及火灾而流离失所的难民们,暂时落居于奥克兰并每天往返于两地之间。

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.
