Los Angeles mayor calls for mandatory earthquake retrofitting for thousands of buildings
from Los Angeles Times
Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti proposed the most ambitious seismic safety regulations in California history that would require owners to retrofit thousands of building most at risk of collapse during a major earthquake. Garcetti's recommendations target two of the riskiest types of buildings in LA built before 1980: concrete buildings and wooden structures built atop weak first floors, such as those on top of carports and garages and supported by slender columns.
