RE: Apartment Building Collapse

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
With access to the internet there are a couple of stories relating to the
building that collapsed in Echo Park (Los Angeles, California) recently.
The LA Times has an online article at,
http://www.latimes.com/news/state/20001209/t000117806.html

And more online news coverage at,
http://www.channel2000.com/news/stories/news-20001211-091437.html

The articles don't detail the cause of the failure but they do give some
history of the building including some statements made by the tenants the
morning of the collapse.
