The 5 Most Horrific Tragedies And Natural Disasters In San Francisco’s History

Yes, the nature here in San Francisco is downright incredible, and the people, well, we like to think we’re pretty fun, peace-loving spirits. But it doesn’t mean this city hasn’t been immune to some of the country’s most horrific tragedies and natural disasters. Of course, we’re surrounded by some very precarious fault lines—perhaps why this land is so dang breathtaking to begin with—and we’ve had to contend with some of Mother Nature’s most powerful shakeups. And then there are the human-caused tragedies, ones that have shaken up our psyches in a whole other manner.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate
