    A great blessing of the earthquake. Have you ever heard about the earthquake in 1906 at San Francisco?
    I have, and that why I’m going to tells you about the History, the fire, death, and
    How did people escape from the earthquake?
    The Earthquake and fire in 1906 at San Francisco. For example in 1906
    At the month of April 18 to 21 many area in San Francisco were destroy by the fire.
    At that time hundred of people were trapped inside the hotel, probably drowned,
    Or crushed to death.In 1906, the destruction of Chinatown by the fires was considered a great blessing of the earthquake.
    The earthquake killed a lot of people and their death body every side of the
    Area. I know that the number of dead people is not known but it is estimated that
    Least 500 met their death in the horror. After the earthquake gone when people
    Walk on the street, every side there was death and suffering at that time. Also hundred were injured, burned, crushed or struck by falling piece from the building.
    I know that the death and destruction have been the fate of San Francisco.
    Many people were find their way to be alive from the earthquake. There much have been10,000 people trying to get on the boat. Many people fought like wildcats to push their way aboard.
    The quake lasted only a minute but caused the worst natural disaster in nation history.
    In my conclusion I think theirs a lot of people die from the earthquake and
    Many people were crying because they lost their house and their family.
