2009年10月16日(1989年17月17日的地震)

它通常不会发生地震医生实际上可以观察到自然界的地震波浪。当然,我们都坐在电脑屏幕前看看摆动地震表的数字表示。事实上,地震表的质量波动随着波浪的节奏。但这些地震图远非真实的东西。博客20年前,当时洛马普里塔地震震动了湾区时,博客实际上看到了地震波。我记得这是一个星期一的下午。每个人都很兴奋,因为A的和巨头在1989年世界系列的第三场比赛中排队了烛台公园(随后被众所周知)。我在车里,从课后活动中挑选了我的儿子,让我的女儿脱掉足球练习。当汽车突然开始隆隆时,我们停在她学校的停车场,然后摇摆。我以为我的儿子在后座上下跳跃,渴望回家看电视上的比赛。 But when I looked in the rear view mirror, I saw him sitting there quietly, staring awestruck out the window. When I looked in the same direction, I saw the asphalt in the parking lot swell and heave as though a giant gopher were digging through the earth at lightning speed. The wave in the asphalt was rapidly moving in our direction; it swayed the car up and down and within a few seconds - it was gone. I think the wave's crest was a few inches high, but everything went so fast that my recollection is somewhat blurred.

那是地震波,我兴奋地告诉儿子。这可能是一生中唯一一次真正看到一个人来来往往,我微笑着看着他。但他毫不在意,冷冷地问我为什么把汽车上的收音机关掉了。我知道我没有,但确实,那里没有声音。那一刻我意识到一定发生了什么大事。我车上的收音机还开着,但电台已经停播了。我的思绪开始急促起来:如果我真的能从停车场的地震中看到地震波,那么震动一定非常严重。我的家人还安全吗?我的房子还好吗?我们抓住女儿开车回家,发现每个人都在发抖,但都安然无恙。 Then, ever so slowly, the news about the destruction at various locations in the Bay Area began to trickle in. The rest, of course, is history. The quake had a magnitude of 6.9, a total of 63 people were killed, and more than 3700 were injured. Its hypocenter lay along the San Andreas Fault in the Santa Cruz Mountains near the Loma Prieta summit, 11 miles beneath the surface. The Cypress structure of the 880 freeway in Oakland had collapsed, parts of the Marina District were burning, one section of the upper deck of the Bay Bridge had fallen onto the lower deck, and there was widespread damage in Watsonville and Santa Cruz.

这些是可怕的事实,但在某种程度上只是统计到博主。他在停车场中生动的浪潮。我相信其他人必须对20年前的十月十月十月有类似的经验。请告诉Blogger自1906年以来您记得湾区最大的地震。通过写入页面的“联系”,通过写入,通过写信给我们“blogger@www.seekoeur.com”。(HRA046)
