Centennial of 1906 Earthquake and Fire
Over 250,000 people lost their homes and more than 3,000 people died in the great quake of 1906. The San Francisco earthquake was the greatest urban natural disaster in the history of the United States until the Bush administration out did themselves with the response to Hurricane Katrina.
Check out www.1906centennial.org for comprehensive information on upcoming events to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the quake.
In addition, I pass on the following walking tours being done by City Guides. (Info courtesy of Blue Heron Custom Tours).
Get Some Exercise and Learn a Little History
City Guides, the folks who do wonderful, free walking tours all around San Francisco, will offer three earthquake related walks throughout the year.
Full descriptions of the walks can be found on City Guide’s website: www.sfcityguides.org.
