    Ground shaking is the most familiar effect of earthquakes. It is a result of the passage of seismic waves through the ground, and ranges from quite gentle in small earthquakes to incredibly violent in large earthquakes. In the 27 March Alaskan earthquake, for example, strong ground shaking lasted for as much as 7 minutes! The great San Francisco earthquake and fire destroyed most of the city and left ,00 people homeless. Full size image - k. The Alaska earthquake of Ma , was of greater magnitude than the San Francisco earthquake; it released perhaps twice as much energy and was felt over an area of almost , square miles.
