106 years ago this morning, an earthquake devastated San Jose, including massive loss of life at Agnews Insane Asylum (right here near my office) [http://contentdm.scu.edu/cdm4/item_viewer.php?CISOROOT=/earthquake&CISOPTR=12&REC=13].
It also destroyed the entire downtown of Santa Rosa (where my friends live), where the shaking was the most intense of the entire event [http://content.cdlib.org/search?brand=eqf&style=eqf&text-join=or&fieldList=text+keywords&relation=bancroft.berkeley.edu+collections+earthquakeandfire&keyword=santa+rosa&publisher=].

I gather it also did some damage in San Francisco.
