As Linda Lockwood sat watching the televised images of chaos that followed San Francisco's Loma Prieta Earthquake in 1989, she felt a calling.

I knew there needed to be a plan." Since then, she has developed a neighborhood disaster-preparedness plan she says can be used in any emergency.

Voters in the Los Angeles City Council's 4th District head to the polls today to elect a successor to the late John Ferraro.
