8 VULNERABLE LIFELINE SYSTEMS Earthquake damaged lifeline systems (transportation, communication, and utility networks) may impede the provision of necessary utility functions, or access to the building site in the postearthquake aftermath. Bay Bridge Collapse, Loma Prieta Earthquake of 1989 Magnitude: 7.1 Collapse of sections of Interstate Highway 5, Northridge Earthquake of 1994 Magnitude: 6.7 Street collapse near port, Kobe Earthquake of 1995 Magnitude: 6.9

9 Northridge, California Year: 1994 Magnitude: 6.7 Killed 63 people Property Damage: $20 billion Over 30% of the building failures could be attributed to flawed construction.
