On April 18, 1906, San Francisco experienced a 7.8 magnitude earthquake that caused devastating fires and destruction. Over 3,000 people died and between 227,000 and 300,000 were left homeless. The damage was estimated at more than $8 billion in today’s dollars. Fun fact? There’s a 99% chance of a magnitude 6.7 or larger occurring in the next 30 years.
And while it'd be great for the housing crisis if the threat of a catastrophic earthquake made us all scared enough to move elsewhere, we know that’s just not gonna happen. So instead, we’re here with a handy list of a few things that'll help most of you survive the Big One. Maybe.
