  • Description

    A strong earthquake ripped through Los Angeles today (Tuesday) killing at least five people and causing widespread damage and fires. The quake has reawakened fears of an often predicted earthquake in San Francisco similar to the one early this century which virtually levelled the city. San Francisco lies directly on a fault line which skirts Los Angeles.

    Visnews has serviced a number of stories relating to the earthquake which is predicted to hit San Francisco. Our production 3025/69 serviced on April 7, 1969 deals at length with this subject. It also includes excellent and rare film of the 1906 earthquake which smashed San Francisco.
