In the wake of the October 17, 1989 Loma Prieta Earthquake, Caltrans commissioned an oral history project to document the personal and professional experiences of Caltrans employees who worked to restore the State's damaged transportation system. At the time of the earthquake, Mick Hayes, was an Environmental Planner for Caltrans at the Oak Street office in San Francisco. In this interview, Hayes describes his personal earthquake experience, being at Candlestick Park, in San Francisco for the World Series with two of his children. He goes into detail of what it was like during and after the earthquake, and he describes his journey to get back to his residence in Rohnert Park, California. After the earthquake, he had a change to his work schedule and commute, but otherwise was not as impacted in his job but the earthquake experience had more of a personal impact.
