USGS Produces Shake Map for 1906 San Francisco Earthquake

According to this press release, the USGS has unvieled a new shake map based on information gathered from various accounts of the 1906 San Francisco Earthquake. “The real service that this 1906 ShakeMap provides is to remind people of the importance of preparedness. It’s not a question of if San Francisco and its neighbors will have another great earthquake, it’s a question of when. By understanding the intensity of shaking we can build safer structures and a more secure infrastructure,” said Mary Lou Zoback, USGS geophysicist and representative on the 1906 Earthquake Centennial Alliance. “The lessons of the 1906 earthquake have contributed so much to science, but advancing public safety remains our number one goal.”
