commented on What to Do If You're In a Skyscraper When the Big One Hits
I read in Davis' Ecology of Fear that, at least in LA, most earthquake-proofing in skyscrapers is really just wishful thinking and that any serious earthquake will probably level most of downtown LA.
aaaand isn't a large part of Seattle's downtown in the liquefaction zone? seems like that would change things.
