What Are Your Loma Prieta Memories?

Scott Lucas | September 23, 2014 | Lifestyle Story City Life

If you were a Bay Area resident during the Loma Prieta Quake of Oct. 17, 1989, and you were old enough to tie your own shoes, then you've likely got an earthquake story to share. We've recounted the quake tales of mayors, rear admirals, and strippers, but there's one group of people we haven't heard from yet: You.

Click here to join in our Loma Prieta Oral History project. It's quick and easy. We'll publish your answer online, and possibly offer you the chance to retell your story in front of a live audience at our "Shaken and Stirred" event on October 17.

Take the Loma Prieta questionnaire now.
