Earthquake


NY TIMES: A powerful earthquake southeast of Tijuana shook Southern California on Sunday afternoon, damaging buildings in northern Mexico and border cities in California and Arizona and rattling a seismically sophisticated population as far north as Los Angeles and Las Vegas as chandeliers swayed, homes shook and the earth seemed to slide under the feet of people emerging from Easter church services for well over a minute. 

We bring attention to this because according to CaliforniaWatch.org, although the UC began identifying seismically hazardous buildings in the 1970s, the system still has 102 buildings rated as “poor” and 10 rated as “very poor.”
