GROUND EFFECTS AND BUILDING DAMAGE On the east side of Howard Street near 17th Street in San Francisco all houses shifted toward the left. The three-story house dropped from its south foundation wall and leaned against the neighboring house. This area, called the Mission District, was a "fill" area along the former course of Mission Creek. It was an area of high-intensity shaking exceeded only by areas in close proximity to the fault. For blocks the land surface and paved streets were thrown into wave forms trending east and west. U.S. Geological Survey (Possible photograph by G.K. Gilbert)
