The scene south of Market Street
from Remembering Loma Prieta in Great Shakes
Firefighters and neighbors dig through piles of bricks from a collapsed building in the South of Market district. Like the Marina district, SoMa is built on landfill. Many of the neighborhood's buildings were also unreinforced masonry, and so they incurred a great deal of damage from the quake.
