Today is the 25th anniversary of the Loma Prieta Earthquake. See photos from Santa Cruz, share your memories of the day.

Totally! Its funny but in general if you are gonna be in a building in a big quake, California is one of the safest places to be in one--thanks to our building codes which are enforced! The Loma Prieta quake caused a lot of retrofitting to take place!
It's hard to judge how much danger earthquakes actually present because so many buildings have been built with earthquakes in mind.
Is the Loma Prieta earthquake the one that interrupted the World Series between the Giants and the A's? I wasn't in Santa Cruz at the time but that one was memorable for its destruction of some of the highways around the Bay Area.
