An Emerg. Oper. Plan & a City response team allowed for the orderly evacuation of 250,000 people from downtown. This illustrated report covers the response phase, the recovery activities which continued for another 3-4 weeks, & the post-disaster mitigation efforts. 14 recommend. were developed to minimize or prevent future losses should a similar disaster occur.
