View of the failed Sheffield Dam after the June 29 earthquake. The earthquake liquefied the soil beneath the concrete-faced, compacted earth dam and a section moved downstream 100 feet. Broken concrete is visible next to the drained reservoir.
View of the Hotel Californian, located at the south corner of State and Mason, after the earthquake struck. The hotel lost huge expanses of its exterior walls during the earthquake. The hotel had opened just 8 days before. The view is from about 30 State St. The hotel was restored after the earthquake. In 2012 the hotel was demolished due to seismic safety concerns. The facade and 2 side walls were kept intact, however.
