Earthquake History Of The Bay Area

The Bay area has previously been marred by two major earthquakes in recorded history, striking in 1906 and 1989. The 1906 earthquake, and its resulting fires, is remembered as one of the worst natural disasters in U.S. history, destroying more than 80% of the city and killing more than 3,000.

On October 17, 1989, a magnitude 6.9 earthquake hit the San Francisco Bay Area, killing 67 people and causing more than $5 billion in damages.
