The Loma Prieta Earthquake which took place on October 17th, 1989 in the greater San Francisco Bay Area, California, caused fifty seven deaths directly and another six more were caused indirectly by the temblor, excluding the fact that there were another 3,757 injuries.

The earthquake occurred at 5:04 PM local time and was recorded at a scale of 6.9 on the Moment magnitude scale. The earthquake lasted for a total time of fifteen seconds. It came during the 1989 World Series, when Bay Area's two Major League Baseball teams, the Oakland Athletics and San Francisco Giants were competing against each other.

The scale and distance of the earthquake from the severe damage caused to the northern region was quiet astonishing to Geotechnologist. The earth quake was quiet severe and damages occurred as far as fifty miles of its epicentre.
