Practical lessons from the Loma Prieta earthquake: report from a symposium sponsored by the Geotechnical Board and the Board on Natural Disasters of the National Research Council : symposium held in conjunction with the Earthquake Engineering Research Institute.

The Loma Prieta earthquake struck the San Francisco area on October 17, 1989, causing 63 deaths and $10 billion worth of damage. This book reviews existing research on the Loma Prieta quake and draws from it practical lessons that could be applied to other earthquake-prone areas of the country. The volume contains seven keynote papers presented at a symposium on the earthquake and includes an overview written by the committee offering recommendations to improve seismic safety and earthquake awareness in parts of the country susceptible to earthquakes.

From the Back Cover

As the results of the Loma Prieta earthquake research became known over the following three years, it was thought that the results could be applied to other earthquake prone areas of the county.
