Additional Details:
The earth shook at exactly 5:04 pm on October 17, 1989 just before the start of the third game of the World Series between the Giants and the A's. The earthquake measured 7.1 on the Richter scale. While 95% of The City escaped serious damage, the Marine District, on landfill, suffered the most destruction. Also shown are the collapsed 880 Freeway and the 50-foot section of the Bay Bridge that collapsed. The bridge was repaired in record time, and reopened one month later
