Twenty years since the World Series Earthquake

My week on the Hayward Fault went without incident. Twenty years ago, California was not so lucky.  The World Series between the San Francisco Giants and the Oakland A's was interrupted by the Loma Prieta earthquake.

October 17, 2009 marks the 20th anniversary of the Loma Prieta Earthquake. At Stanford University, a panel of experts will reflect on what happened in 1989, the likely impact of future Bay Area earthquakes, progress in earthquake science and engineering, how the Bay Area can become more earthquake resilient, and earthquake preparedness.

Speaking of the World Series, go Phillies. And Yankees. What will I do if they face each other?
