Los Angeles

More than 25% of Los Angeles County's nearly 10 million people have never experienced a major earthquake. It's been 20 years since the magnitude 6.7 Northridge Earthquake struck on January 17, 1994. The LA area has been seismically quiet since, leaving an entire generation unaware of the damage that could be done.

Northridge remains the most damaging quake in the U.S. since 1906, causing 57 deaths, thousands of injuries, and over $20 billion in damage throughout Los Angeles County. In 1994, 40% of LA County residents had earthquake insurance – today, only 16% are insured.
