Why doesn't San Francisco have another earth quake like the 1906 one that destroyed the city?

    They expect another big one within the next 30 years or so, based on how frequently such big quakes happened in the past. The earthquake did not destroy the city. It was gas leaks and the fire that did.

    In 1989 a quake hit San Francisco. Does that not count?

    Well friend sooner or later it's going to happen again. California has a fault line that runs straight through it and it's just a fact of life California is going to have earthquakes just like Florida is going to have hurricanes

    Almost sounds like a suggestion. Anyways, the death toll would be a bit high if the city were destroyed, so let's hope it doesn't happen.

    Well.. I don't know about SF, but L.A. and southern California are long overdue for a big one. They say it's going to be huge when it comes, and L.A. is not built for earthquakes at all (which is ironic as they're on a fault line).
