Earthquake damage in the San Francisco area and projection to Greater Vancouver / authors, J.H. Rainer ... [et al.].: NH17-160/1990E-PDF
"The earthquake that hit the San Francisco area on October 17, 1989 produced damage to buildings, to transportation facilities, and to services in the order of $10 billion (U.S.) and loss of life of over 60 people. This earthquake can be used as a model for the seismic risk faced by the greater Vancouver area because of many similarities with a design earthquake in the Vancouver area. These similarities include earthquake magnitude and duration, location relative to population centres, range of recorded ground accelerations, and similarities in type of construction"--Exec.
