Why is L.A. Ticking? Faultlines and Nukes After Japan by Peter Boyd

#3 in History top-reviews

"Why is Los Angeles Ticking" is an update after Japan's quake, tsunami and nuclear meltdowns. I started writing about the L.A. faultlines after the 1994 Northridge Earthquake. We lived six miles from the epicenter. At the time I was writing a Southern California Chronology -. focusing on the social, climatic, political and tectonic changes in the Los Angeles Basin.

I had wrtten a novel about the founding of Los Angeles. A chapter about the 1769 earthquake that created the Santa Ana River stood out. Many of the features of Los Angeles have been tied to earth movement. With nuclear plants and high buildings built below building code standards, Japan, 2011, puts L.A. under a microscope. I'd lived in Los Angeles for 67 years. I've been a journalist with the "L,A. Free Press" and "Entertainment Weekly." A contracted composer for Warner Bros. Music/Tamara Music with over 300 songs.

I love L.A. and want buildings actually built to code, brush clearance done regularly and for everyone to be as safe as can be.

My father was a leading architect who had gone to Japan in 1927 and to Mexico in 1957 to study their earthquakes and helped put the new , higher than 13 stories, building code in place, however, It hasn't been adhered to. The proof is there.

Very informative and a bit frightening. I'm sending some home. Los Angeles is so beautiful but there is so much danger underneath her. Good book.
