The 1906 San Francisco earthquake resulted in the death of about 3,000 people. Nearly 80% of San Francisco was destroyed (mostly by fires which broke out after the quake and lasted for several days). Government officials reported that only 300 people died because they feared if the truth were known, efforts to rebuild the city would be hurt. Do you think the government officials had a right to do that or should they have told the truth?
As a basic reference about the earthquake and the damage it caused, geologic observations of the fault rupture and shaking effects, and other consequences of the earthquake, the Lawson (1908) report remains the authoritative work, as well as arguably the most important study of a single earthquake.
