List Of Los Angeles Disasters since the 70s According to Hollywood

If Hollywood would be any indication, Los Angeles may not be a very safe place to be in after all. Almost all types of disasters and other strange phenomena and must have recorded 23 such occurrences since 1974. For some reason, aliens have a penchant for coming into the city, deadly earthquakes would happen at least once in a decade, zombies would love to attack around twice in 25 years and even dogs and cats that speak, babies who could talk and even snakes that hijack airplanes. I think Los Angeles has got all types of trouble covered.

Since 1974, here are the catastrophes and strange occurrences that have happened in the city:
*ravaged by a major earthquake in 1974 (Earthquake)
*had a dog trained to viciously attack only black people in 1982 (White Dog)
*attacked by zombies in 1984 (Night of the Comet)
*had a cyborg assasin programmed to kill a certain Sarah Connor in 1984 (The Terminator)
*had an alien master criminal and master of disguise inhabit human bodies and commite violent crimes in 1987 (The Hidden)
*had three aliens fall in love with a california girl in 1988 (Earth Girls Are Easy)
*survived a nuclear holocause in 1988 (Miracle Mile)
*had living cartoon characers called "toons" alongside humans in 1988 (Who Framed Roger Rabbit)
*had a teenager who cheerleads her high school by day and is a vampire slayer by night in 1992 (Buffy the Vampire Slayer)
*had a caveman from prehistoric ages thawed and brought back to life in 1992 (Encino Man)
*had a governor's husband attempt to have his governor/wife assasinated in 1995 (Nick of Time)
*had alien terrorists bomb US Bank Tower in 1996 (Independence Day)
*a newly-discovered volcano creates an inferno in the city in 1997 (Volcano)
*had angels chill on top of downtown L.A. skyscrapers then in turn fall in love with humans in 1998 (City of Angels)
*had killer tornadoes destroy the city in 2004 (The Day After Tomorrow)
*experienced alien invasion in 2005 (War of the Worlds)
*a magnitude 10.5 earthquake destroyed the city in 2006 (10.5: Apocalypse)
*had venomous snakes attack airplane passengers before it landed at LAX in 2006 (Snakes on a Plane)
*had a trio of chipmunks become popular singers in 2007 (Alvin and the Chipmunks)
*had a meteorite collide with the earth in the city in 2007 (The Apocalypse)
*saw the rise of a new superhero in 2008 (Iron Man)
*a monster earthquake slid the city into the Pacific Ocean in 2009 (2012)
*witnessed a giant crocodile battle it out with a giant shark in 2010 (Mega Shark Versus Crocosaurus)

It's amazing how Los Angeles survived all of those things. The angels that guard over the City of Angels must love the city so much that they always seem to recover fast after every disaster.
