Oct 17, 1989: Loma Prieta Earthquake
www ccc stashed this in This Day in History
i wonder if they mentioned this in the dedication of the new Bay Bridge this year (probably not as this event was on the Western span, and the new is Eastern)
Hard to believe that was 24 years ago. Wow.
$6-8 Billion in damage! http://www.vibrationdata.com/earthquakes/lomaprieta.htm
and it happened during the World Series Game 3 btw A's and Giants. So crazy.
