A severe earthquake occurre l at
5:10 : Wednesday morning , causing
the loss of millions of dollars worth
of property in San Francisco.
For three minutes buildings
rocked like cradles. It is impos
sible to form any estimate of the
dead and injured. One report
says 1000 were killed.
Fires are burning in several
parts of the city for want of means
to check them as water mains and
pipes everywhere are broken by
the shock and falling buildings.
JBuildings are being blown up by
dynamite to check the fires that
threaten destruction to the re
mainder of the business portion of
San Francisco. The greatest dam
age was on Druinm , Davis , Front ,
Battery , Sanson , Montgomery ,
Kearney , Spear , Main , Beale and
Fremont streets. All wires are
down , excepting the postal tele
graph. The entire water front is
on tire. The city hall , costing
§ 7,000,000 , is in ruins. Thous
ands of buildings are destroyed.
In the residence portion the
damage was not so severe and
modern buildings sustained less
damage than the older brick and
frame. Three miles of the South
ern Pacific track sank 4 feet under
water between Suisuan and Bene-
cia , 30 miles from San Francisco.
Oakland suffered severely.
