Earthquake Mitigation in the Bay Area: Lessons from the Loma Prieta Earthquake: Summary Report
Patricia A. Bolton (au); Carlyn E. Orians (au)
The Loma Prieta earthquake of Oct. 17, 1989 caused $8 billion in damage throughout the San Francisco Bay region & in Santa Cruz County. Much of the development in the San Francisco Bay region survived with little or no damage. This is due in part to the location & physical characteristics of the earthquake itself & in part to deliberate actions on the part of local govíts. & citizens to reduce the vulnerability of the built environment to earthquake damage. Various fed., state, & regional programs have been carried out to promote local-level loss reduction activities. This study focused on county & city mitigation efforts in the 7 counties that sustained the most earthquake damage: Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, San Mateo, Santa Clara, Santa Cruz, & San Fran.
