Then and Now Reflections of the Loma Prieta Earthquake

Today marks the 23rd anniversary of the Loma Prieta earthquake. Although this earthquake may not be one of recent memory, it still remains one of the most significant disasters to have occurred in the Bay Area (and California at large). And the memories from those of us who experience the earthquake first hand are fresh, which is why we are dedicating this em4SF blog today, and through the rest of this commemorative week, to story telling around Loma Prieta Earthquake. Today, on the anniversary, we are sharing  a first hand account of the Loma Prieta Earthquake from then Mayor Art Agnos.

About the begin the interview, pictured left to right is DEM Deputy Director Rob Dudgeon, Mayor Art Agnos and DEM EMS Administrator, and who interviewed the Mayor, Steve LaPlante.

We hope you will take a few minutes to listen to his account and take this anniversary as a good reminder to recommitt to preparing for an emergency–no matter how big or small–and visit 72hours.org to learn how.
