Earthquake Chronicles of the Lost Coast
Our region on the north coast of California is one of the most seismically active areas in the state, so the residents here are used to earthquakes and take them in stride. But in 1992, we were in shock after three major earthquakes it in under 18 hours, along with hundreds of aftershocks. There was major damage and landslides, and the coastline lifted up over 4 1/2 feet. That experience is related here in our stories.
