L.A. to Begin Ordering Earthquake Retrofits in February, Officials Say

Owners of thousands of wooden apartment buildings at risk of collapse in a major earthquake will begin receiving retrofit orders as early as February, Los Angeles building officials said this week. This follows the city’s adoption of the most sweeping mandatory seismic regulations in the nation. An estimated 15,000 buildings across Los Angeles will be strengthened to better withstand violent shaking. The law capped decades of efforts to strengthen two types of older buildings that proved deadly in past earthquakes: brittle concrete buildings that dot L.A.'s major boulevards and wood-frame apartment complexes with weak first floors. About 65 people died when these types of buildings collapsed
