Where will they go? In the three days after the Northridge Earthquake, sociologist Paul O’Brien trekked to the epicenter to collect survivors’ stories. He spoke with 31 survivors, some over the phone, but for the most part, he met people where they were lodging during those first few days and nights: on the street. “One could not drive down any street in the Northridge section of town, and not find tents staked out on lawns, in parks, and anywhere else residents could find roo...
