Big, Bigger, Biggest

January 10, 1988

Your fictional account of the first hours after a 7.5 magnitude earthquake on the Newport-Inglewood Fault, "The Bigger One" (Nov. 29), presented what is, unfortunately, an all-too-plausible scenario. By Dec. 3, your article had led more than 3,000 Southern California residents to write our Southern California Earthquake Preparedness Project. In cooperation with the Los Angeles chapter of the American Red Cross, the Governor's Office of Emergency Services is responding to each of these requests with a comprehensive family and home preparedness guide.
