Hey, L.A. denizens, here's a day-brightener for ya: The U.S. Geological Survey and the Southern California Earthquake Center say that potential earthquakes on the Puente Hills fault underneath the city could result in 3,000 to 18,000 fatalities, 142,000 to 735,000 displaced households, and more than $250 billion in total damages.

 

Tom Shoop is vice president and editor in chief at Government Executive Media Group, where he oversees both print and online editorial operations. He started as associate editor of Government Executive magazine in 1989; launched the company’s flagship website, GovExec.com, in 1996; and was named editor in chief in 2007.
