Quake Response

We noted in a prior post there would be increased attention to earthquake risks in LA around the 20th anniversary of the Jan. 27, 1994 Northridge quake.  One item that began to develop was an LA Times article indicating that various buildings were at risk in the LA area, even though they were thought safe when constructed.  One of the buildings in Westwood is owned by UCLA, which asserted that it had been upgraded.  It was also reported that a team of researchers at Berkeley had compiled a list of such buildings, but was not making the list available due to litigation concerns.  The LA Times now indicates that the list will be made available.  See http://www.latimes.com/local/lanow/la-me-ln-list-of-buildings-at-risk-in-earthquake-will-be-released-to-la-20140117,0,3874307.story
