Friday, January 17, 2014. Twenty years ago today, an earthquake struck in the San Fernando Valley of Los Angeles. It killed 57 people and injured nearly 9000. I talk about the Northridge Earthquake and consider the question of whether it was "the Big One."
The picture is of a partially collapsed apartment building damaged in the earthquake, of a type which is no longer legal to build in California because of the Northridge quake.
