Federal Emergency Management Agency. National Emergency Training Center. (03/2003 - ). This video recording documents scenes of the October 17, 1989 Loma Prieta Earthquake and its aftermath. The largest to hit the San Francisco area since 1906 and registering a 7.1 magnitude, the Loma Prieta Earthquake's effects are shown during the Candlestick Park World Series game, in stores, and on the street. Much of the footage is devoted to the California Highway Patrol's response to, and findings of, the seismic shaking on the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge and the Cypress Street Viaduct, two of the most severely hit structures in the area. Scenes show difficult rescue attempts and earthquake victim evacuations.
