This week marks the 25th anniversary of the Loma Prieta Earthquake in the San Francisco Bay Area. California faces unique challenges when it comes to earthquakes, with several fault lines running under the land beneath our feet. The Southern California Earthquake Data Center keeps track of all seismic activity in California and Nevada and posts a daily map. Although the death and injury toll was much lower, with one dead and 200 injured, the quake’s destruction threw the Napa community into chaos.
Governor Jerry Brown declared a state of emergency due to the damage and possibility of aftershocks.

That earthquake was one of the largest and most destructive earthquakes in American history, at magnitude 6.9 and an estimated $6 billion in damages.
Prior to the Loma Prieta quake, several moderate foreshocks (smaller, less severe earthquakes that occur before a main earthquake event) occurred in June 1988 and August 1989. At least 15,000 customers in and around Sonoma, Napa and Santa Rosa lost power, according to Pacific Gas and Electric Company. You’ll need a disaster kit and a safety plan for you and your family, plus knowledge of first aid and CPR goes a long way. If you are in an area that may experience tsunamis, when the shaking stops, walk inland or to higher ground immediately. Text SHELTER + your ZIP code to 43362 (4FEMA) to find the nearest shelter in your area (example: shelter 95051). Stay away unless your assistance has been specifically requested by police, fire, or relief organizations.


President Barack Obama declared the quake a major federal disaster on September 11 and rebuilding efforts are still underway for the areas impacted by the quake. Remember our post on disaster preparedness? Other safety measures apply to earthquake readiness and response. It’s a worldwide response to educate and inform people on earthquake drills and safety to avoid injury. Their website has a ton of information on drills and other earthquake safety issues, include, how to help people with disabilities during a disaster.
