"Los Angeles Is Overdue for a More Powerful Earthquake Than We Thought"

From The Atlantic:

Right now, more than 1,000 concrete structures could collapse during a major quake, including homes and offices, according to a recent investigation by the Los Angeles Times. Even an ultra-conservative amount of temblor-induced mayhem would destroy up to 50 buildings and expose "thousands to injury or death," warns the paper.
