Shaken & Stirred: Remembering the Loma Prieta Earthquake

Thirty years after the Loma Prieta Earthquake, the Bay Area is still on shaky ground. Major earthquakes have shaped Bay Area throughout history, from the 1868 earthquake that destroyed much of Chinatown and the commercial district in San Francisco, to the 1906 earthquake and fire that dragged down the global economy until 1908, to the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake that liquefied the Marina District, destroyed double decker freeways throughout The Bay, and destroyed much of downtown Santa Cruz and Salinas. The legacy of the 1989 earthquake is permanently etched on the geography of the Bay Area - revitalized waterfront in San Francisco, Martin Luther King Blvd in Oakland, a modern, pedestrian mall in Santa Cruz, as well as deep ravines in the Santa Cruz Mountains, soft story laws and more.

Living on the Ring of Fire is violent and unpredictable; its earth-shaking spasms affect lives far beyond the Bay Area. Earthquakes have been present throughout human history and are the only natural disaster not affected by Climate Change.
