The Great San Francisco Earthquake
Oscar-winning actor F. Murray Abraham narrates this earth-shattering episode of "The American Experience." On Apr. 18, 1906, San Francisco denizens had a rude awakening at 5:30 a.m. as Mother Nature delivered a catastrophic earthquake measuring 8.3 on the Richter scale -- followed by gas-fueled fires raging out of control. Historians, eyewitness accounts, archival film and photos tell the tale of a booming city literally shaken to its core.
