13. DAMAGE TO PREMISES. In the event the Premises are destroyed or rendered wholly
uninhabitable by fire, storm, earthquake, or other casualty not caused by the negligence of
Tenant, this California Lease Agreement shall terminate from such time except for the purpose of
enforcing rights that may have then accrued hereunder. The rental provided for herein shall then
be accounted for by and between Landlord and Tenant up to the time of such injury or destruction
of the Premises, Tenant paying rentals up to such date and Landlord refunding rentals collected
beyond such date. Should a portion of the Premises thereby be rendered uninhabitable, the
Landlord shall have the option of either repairing such injured or damaged portion or terminating
this Lease. In the event that Landlord exercises its right to repair such uninhabitable portion, the
rental shall abate in the proportion that the injured parts bears to the whole Premises, and such
part so injured shall be restored by Landlord as speedily as practicable, after which the full rent
shall recommence and the California Lease Agreement continue according to its terms.
