That really depends on your respective neighborhoods. I suspect that parts of LA/greater SOCAL will go lawless rather quickly ó other parts not so much. Small towns will do much better than larger metropoli. Just an opinion, Iíll smile if proven wrong.

Iím pleasantly surprised at the lack of fatalities. Thatís really excellent.

Loc: Alaska
We are still getting occaisional aftershocks. One (M 4.7) woke me up this morning. Seismologists tell us these will continue for quite awhile. Meanwhile, the task of cleaning up, and identifying and fixing damage continues. I discovered some minor damage to my garage door, making it hard to open and close (I could do it by hand, but the power mechanism had trouble). I was lucky to get someone over who fixed it.

Here is some more info on building codes, enforcement or lack thereof, and consequences in an earthquake.
Hereís why some structures fell in the Alaska earthquake and others didnít. And how we decided that.

And some info on the ongoing task of evaluating structures:
An army of engineers and contractors is working to check Anchorage homes and fix quake damage
