Loma Prieta, California, Earthquake of October 17, 1989-Loss Estimation and Procedures [open pdf - 2MB]
"This Professional Paper includes a collection of papers on subjects ranging from evaluation of building safety, to human injuries, to correlation of ground deformation with building damage. What these papers share is a common goal to improve the tools available to the research community to measure the nature, extent, and causes of damage and losses due to earthquakes. These measurement tools are critical to reducing future loss."
