The disastrous earthquake in Haiti yesterday is a wake-up call to all of us that emergency situations can happen quickly and without warning, and that communications are often badly compromised when they happen. In the case of our Loma Prieta earthquake in 1989, phone lines were down and even some major radio stations in the Bay Area were offline for awhile.
