San Bernardino – A new LA Times report highlighted the number of buildings across the inland region that could collapse in the event of a major earthquake. According to the report, at least 640 buildings across the region have yet to be retrofitted for earthquake safety “despite decades of warnings.” The buildings in question are in cities in Riverside and San Bernardino Counties. The region’s economic frailties in recent years has limited the availability of public funding to help facilitate retrofit efforts and it remains unclear why retrofitting these buildings was not prioritized in the decades prior to the Great Recession. The full report is available online at http://www.latimes.com/local/lanow/la-me-earthquake-safety-brick-buildings-inland-empire-20180209-htmlstory.html.
