Earthquake Weather: Project by Jenifer Wofford

The Earthquake Weather project of Jenifer Wofford combines all the crazy memories of the 1989 quake with superb illustrations.

I remember it – well sort of.  I had driven from San Francisco to LA that evening, and in the morning everyone kept saying how San Francisco was destroyed/had a big quake/ was burning. I kept thinking everything was fine when I left – it was very disorienting. So when I heard about this project I got excited.

It’s been 25 years since the Loma Prieta quake, and the Bay Area has changed considerably. It’s always been a place of transition and flux: people come and go, the earth shifts beneath us. Still, for those of us who were actually here in 1989 and who still vividly remember this event, this anniversary seemed like a good time to collect some of these memories.

Earthquake Weather is a collection of people’s personal stories of that day, with occasional illustrations by yours truly.
