Anhueser-Busch Can Donated To Give Out To The Survivor's Of The 1989 6.9 Loma-Prieta Earth Quake.
"The Loma Prieta earthquake, also known as the Quake of '89 and the World Series Earthquake
was a major earthquake that struck the San Francisco Bay Area
of California on October 17, 1989, at 5:04 p.m. local time.
Caused by a slip along the San Andreas Fault, the quake lasted 10–15 seconds and measured 6.9 on the moment magnitude scale (surface-wave magnitude 7.1)or 6.9 on the open-ended Richter Scale.
The quake killed 63 people throughout northern California,
injured 3,757 and left some 3,000-12,000 people homeless."
"The earthquake occurred during the warm-up practice for the third game of the 1989 World Series,featuring both of the Bay Area's Major League Baseball teams, the Oakland Athletics and the San Francisco Giants.Because of game-related sports coverage, this was the first major earthquake in the United States of America to have its initial jolt broadcast live on television."
Wow!! I Remember. Thought Quakes Were @ Any Moment Fun, Till This One.
Much Respect To The Family's & The Many We Lost.
