Below are pictures from yesterdays Earthquake; it looks a lot prettier in the pictures then when it happened; the floor hours earlier was covered with pieces from the ceiling and wall. And this place is billed luxory lofts!
It's been standing for almost 100 years, so I guess something has to be giving it the support it needs.
The funny thing is all week long my wife and I have been saying "we really need to go to Home Depot and get Earthquake straps for the bookcases." We still haven't got them, but the bookcase were about the only thing that weren't swaying.
