SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. - Some buildings in San Francisco are under scrutiny from residents due to design flaws.
One example is the Millenium Tower, which is sinking and also leaning, problems that were discovered at the tower two years ago.
The city has been working to address earthquake safety on site, and now code enforcement is the reevaluating the resiliency of the city's tallest buildings.
"Doing these sorts of things could be replicated, and probably should be, in other cities on the West Coast," said John Hooper, doctor of earthquake engineering for the Magnussen Klemencic Association.
The city administrator announced a new plan to make sure current and future skyscrapers are better able to withstand an earthquake.
City leaders will start considering turning what are now safety recommendations into actual law this October.
