Vista Point plaque installed

A plaque commemorating the 100th anniversary of the 1906 earthquake and fire that shook the Bay Area was installed at the vista point in parking lot 8 on April 18. The plaque was supposed to be installed before the 18th with a ceremony, but weather delays held up installation. Because of timeliness, there will no longer be a ceremony on the plaque.

Skyline College plans on using the plaque for education purposes, teaching the surrounding community about the fault line and earthquake readiness.

Dean of math, science and technology, Mike Williamson, said the plaque serves as a reminder of the Bay Area’s vulnerability to earthquakes.

“A lot of communities are sometimes resisting acknowledging that they live on the San Andreas fault,” he said.

In addition, the geology classes plan to utilize the plaque by holding lectures on the fault line at the look out.
