Electricity and gas in the area affected by the earthquake were supplied by Pacific Gas and Electric (PG&E) Company which served more than 10 million people in northern and central California.

It came to pass just as the Lord had predicted. He Loma Prieta earthquake reconnaissance report book predicted that night, that there would be an earthquake on Tuesday, and many people would die. The Loma Preita Earthquake was that second predicted earthquake.

It happened October 17th on Tuesday, in /5(2). The ground shook for only fifteen seconds, but that brief quarter-minute started fires, destroyed highways, united San Francisco, caused the deaths of 62, delayed a World Series, broke the Bay Bridge, and inspired a university professor to write a book of poems called Loma Prieta – the name of the mountain at the epicenter of the quake and subsequently assigned to the disaster.

Post-earthquake reconnaissance typically occurs after an earthquake of magnitude M7 or higher, and the information obtained is extremely valuable to our daily practice in seismic engineering. The Loma Prieta earthquake was named for Loma Prieta Peak in the Santa Cruz Mountains, which lies just to the east of the mainshock epicenter.

The duration of the heaviest shaking in the Santa Cruz Mountains was about 15 seconds, but strong ground motion recordings revealed that the duration of shaking was not uniform throughout the affected area (due to different types Duration: 8–15 seconds.

The earthquake was named after Mt. Loma Prieta which is located in the Santa Cruz Mountains. Though the Loma Prieta earthquake of lasted only for a duration of roughly 20 seconds, it was one of the worst earthquakes to have hit the San Francisco Bay Area in California; leaving over 63 people dead and injuring thousands more.
