In the midst of colossal upheaval, it is the rare person who, recognizing historical significance, has both the opportunity and the presence of mind to do something about it. Eric Tofsrud is such a person. As the dust was still rising from buildings jolted apart by the Loma Prieta quake, Eric, a ham radio operator, powered up his equipment and hit the record button, preserving for history the voices and sounds of the events that followed. Eric volunteered with the Palo Alto, California Red Cross Disaster Action Team from 1983 to 1991. He works for the USGS. This is the record he made.
