While the focus is currently on the devastation in Haiti, we could be next.

Time Magazine makes its predictions for the next big one, and Los Angeles tops the list.

Los Angeles has done a lot to beef up its building codes and emergency response in the 15 years since the Northridge quake and may be better prepared than any other major American city, but the city’s sheer size ensures the next Big One will be bloody.

Be prepared.

As for Haiti, the social media site Mashable has come up with 9 ways you can help.

UPDATE (1:49PM) – Before giving to any organization, protect yourself from possible scams by checking Charity Navigator.
