The San Franciso Earthquake

At almost precisely 5:12 a.m., local time, a foreshock occurred with sufficient force it was felt widely throughout the San Francisco Bay area. The great earthquake broke loose some 20 to 25 seconds later, with an epicenter near San Francisco. Violent shocks punctuated the strong shaking which lasted nearly 60 seconds. Sources report that the earthquake was felt from as far north as Oregon to south of Los Angeles and inland as far as central Nevada.
