Scientists call San Francisco Bay Area 'Tectonic Time Bomb'

Sixty-three people died when Loma Prieta hit the San Francisco Bay Area. Thirty years later scientists have a chilling reminder: that quake was just a warm up.

ABC7 wants to help make the Bay Area an even better place to live. So we dedicate more time, resources, and reporting to the major stories that impact the local quality of life.

From the housing crisis, to our schools, and frustrating commutes, ABC7’s goal is to bring you greater perspective on the challenges facing our neighborhoods right now.

We promise to dig deeper and find solutions to help build a #BetterBayArea.
