Although it’s difficult to note the last “big” earthquakes, since it depends on opinion, the San Francisco earthquake of 1906 is important to note. It was a major earthquake that struck San Francisco and the coast of Northern California on Wednesday, April 18, 1906 with its estimated magnitude of 7.8.
It ruptured along the San Andreas Fault both northward and southward for a total of 296 miles, producing shaking that was felt from Oregon to Los Angeles, and inland as far as central Nevada.
In addition to the memerable earthquake in 1906, San Francisco also saw sizeable quakes in 1955 and 1989.
