Downtown SF in my office on Montgomery St when it hit. Watched our engineering geologist across the hall dive under his desk and, when the shaking subsided, saw him grab a knapsack and run out of our building. He disappeared for three days, nobody knew where. When he finally returned he was covered in mud and his clothes were torn and scratched. He had spent three days in the Loma Prieta hills looking for the epicenter and the surficial evidence of the event.
