SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- ABC7's "The Earthquake Effect" debuted on the 30th anniversary week of the Loma Prieta earthquake. It featured a never before seen aerial view of the entire vulnerable Hayward Fault using exclusive SKY7 mapping technology and brand new first time footage inside the Bay Bridge structure to demonstrate its readiness.
