At Last: Preparing for the Big One to Hit LA

Hosted by

Los Angeles has lagged behind San Francisco when it comes to preparing for the inevitable Big One on the San Andreas Earthquake Fault.  Yesterday, Mayor Eric Garcetti conceded LA was behind the curve, even while he was on the City Council.  But now, he said, he wants that to change.  With help from Lucy Jones, seismologist with the US Geological Survey, he’s announced the most ambitious seismic safety plan in state history.
