California: 800+ buildings at risk of quake collapse (KTLA/CNN)

One southern California city is warning that hundreds of its buildings are at risk of damage or collapse in the event of a major earthquake.

The city of West Hollywood has identified more than 800 buildings, mostly wood-framed structures like some apartments, as vulnerable.

Officials say further studies will be done to determine whether the buildings need to be reinforced to prevent damage.

West Hollywood joins Los Angeles, Santa Monica, and other California cities aiming to strengthen its structure ahead of a major earthquake.

One of California's fault lines, the Hollywood Fault, runs along West Hollywood's iconic Sunset Strip.
