On Oct., 17, 1989, News 10 at 5:00 was live on the air as the Loma Prieta Earthquake struck the Bay Area. This is the first 15 minutes of their coverage (edited). Though the epicenter was 80 miles away, the quake was felt strongly in the Sacramento area. Because the World Series game was taking place at Candlestick Park in San Francisco, News 10 had many crews in the Bay Area and was able to respond quickly.
