On October 19, 1989 ... ABC Sports’ Al Michaels was broadcasting the opening of the 1989 World Series when suddenly all hell broke loose. On the air, Michaels announced that San Francisco was experiencing a large earthquake. It turned out to measure 6.9 on the Richter Scale.
All of San Francisco was affected. Fires broke out all over – with a very large fire in the Marina district. A large portion of the Nimitz Freeway collapsed, trapping people in cars and under concrete. Roads and bridges all over the city became impassible.
This documentary mission, from the creator of Palm 90 and Boston Skyscraper fire, recreates those events … in stunning detail. Strap into your Jet Ranger. The fire department needs you!
