Loma Prieta Earthquake Stories

I was getting ready for the first game of the world series in SF. I was sitting on the throne taking care of business when the earthquake hit. My kids where in the living room and they where freaking out so i told them to go outside and they wanted me to come with them but i could not. The medicine cabinet fell off the wall and hit me in the head. I tried to call my father in TX to tell him we were ok but could not; ten minutes later he called me
