Suddenly, an unknown and unexpected earthquake hits at 7.1 on their
machine. The earthquake causes the dam to collapse, kills Park in the
process, and floods the area.
While Emma and Susan are having lunch in San Francisco, the building that

rescue her. So, he gets in a rescue helicopter to save his ex-wife. He
tells her to get on the very top of the building so he can see her. But,
that is easier said than done because the building crumbles down.

Blake screaming for help. So, he tries to help her but the car is smashed
and she is trapped. He pokes holes in the tires and the car is lowered, so
she can get out.

are destroyed by a 9.2 earthquake, which never happened in Californiaís
Finally, Ray managed to save Emma and Blake. Because Ben was a hero, they
started dating which was the end of the movie.
All in all, it is a great movie! The special effects were impressive,
particularly when the buildings were falling down. The Graphics were great,
particularly, when the Tsunami hit San Francisco. This movie is suspenseful,
such as when Ray was going to rescue his family. It is also exciting and
maybe worth the money to pay for and watch it.
