time is 6:43. you might think buildings in the united states can withstand a earthquake better than the one that struck italy last week but as carter evans reports, many build initial california are not earthquake ready. >> reporter: century's old towns destroyed in the italy quake are far from the los angeles sky line, both in distance and in construction style but cal tech seismologist lucy jones warns that the destruction from a shallow earthquake center here would look very similar. >> we have buildings all over the state that are a hundred years old, so, unless they have been retro fitted they
6:44 am
are just as vulnerable as buildings in italy. >> reporter: brick buildings crumbled in nap when 6.0 quake struck in 2014. but damage is limited because many had already been strengthened. if that building isn't reenforced what happens to it in the large earthquake. >> well, in buildings like that without any seismic strengthening is what i called a dead box. >> reporter: kitties a california safety commissioner and structural engineer. his company strengthens buildings like this one this downtown l.a. >> before this was reenforced, it would be what happened here this would have a major damage even collapse. >> even though it is all concrete. >> of course, because anything you build prior to 1980's it the is very dangerous. >> reporter: city of los angeles alone has identified 13,500 small residential apartment buildings that needs strengthening which can cost tens of thousands of dollars each but he says that owners can start small.
6:45 am
>> you don't have to fix everything, you don't have to be perfect about it. >> reporter: but every little thing you do makes a difference. >> that is exactly correct. >> reporter: experts say even many of the newer build initial california are only earthquake resistant meaning they are designed to a how people to get out alive but they may not be inhabitable afterward. carter evans for cbs news, los angeles. justin drabick has a look at the forecast. justin, i noticed in that seven day there is a nice little switch from the 90's back down to the lower 80's. >> just in time for meteorological fall, something for everybody. we have hot temperatures around, finishing off the month have of august. if you like 90's we have a few you more to go and we may tie in the year 2012 with the most 90-degree days for the season there. and we will see what happens over the next few you days but 70 in philadelphia. sixty-two in allentown. not bad this morning. even 50's mount pocono. the suburbs build in the 50's in quakertown. the nice breeze off the ocean right now, stone harbor, ocean city in the lower to mid 70's.
6:46 am
ocean water temperatures in the low to mid 70's. that is where we will see our ocean water temperature the warmest late august into september. all right. dew points. the this tells the story for humidity. allentown low dew point at 59. higher around philadelphia and wilmington. mug any dover at 71. this isn't terrible for this time of the year. even though it is hot, things could be worse as far as humidity levels go. as joe was mentioning changes on the way, we have a late week cool down. we are at 84 for this time of the year but next several days, well above that, today through wednesday upper 80's through low 90's but we will see a drop below average. temperatures will struggle to reach 80 degrees probably on friday and that cooler trend will continue in the upcoming labor day holiday. storm scan three it is showing very quiet conditions this pattern will hold for the next few days, cloud, to our west, there is a little weak cold front out in chicago, that will try to move through tomorrow, and really won't do anything but bring a few clouds and it the will not
6:47 am
bring any cool air behind the front either. shore forecast looks great today, sunny at 82. tomorrow warmer at 84 degrees. the tuesday, a little bit cooler at 81. we will get that breeze off the water. the great looking beach forecast coming at us. the problem is rip currents. it will be stronger, over the next several days, the reason is hurricane gaston way out over central atlantic water, wave heights near the storm close to 20 feet. these swells reach our coastline. it takes a few days to happen but we will not be dealing with 20-foot waves but they will make to it three or 4 feet chest high, and then there will be stronger rip currents. make sure you swim at a guarded beach, just for the stronger currents there. gaston wind are the at 90 miles an hour. the category one storm. could be a category two over the next 24 hours but does track away from the coast back to the north and east. but still, these swells will make to it our area beaches. so rip currents probably strong, pretty much through much of the upcoming week. back home there is a weak cold
6:48 am
front that tries to pass us tomorrow. bringing a band of clouds over us. maybe a stray shower. probably won't notice front passing through. very warm today 89 degrees in the sunshine. the stays quiet tonight. mostly clear. seventy for the city. probably some 60's out in the suburbs. check out this forecast. again, these are to temperatures that are typical for mid to late july, upper 80's, lower 90's through wednesday. wednesday does after i shot of a late day shower or storm. a stronger front comes through. that is what knocks the temperatures back down. just in time for early september. we're talking about highs in the low 80's on friday and saturday. joe, back over to you. >> justin, we will give friday the gold medal. >> awesome stuff. >> very good, thank you, sir. it is now 6:48. this sunday morning. time to check the roads. lets go to ann evans in the cbs-3 traffic center. good morning. >> good morning, joe. we are looking at i-95 at 420. we had an accident cleared in the northbound lanes to the right of the screen but we are good to go now at i-95 and 420 and on i-95 through philadelphia and its suburbs. we are going to move the

6:50 am
retirement. how? well, last year, a little more than half of the employers, surveyed, and enrolled workers into that retirement saving plan like 401k. 30 percent contributed 6 percent or more of the workers salary to the savings plan which, according to the report is a big deal. and here's why, if automatically enrolled 88 percent of workers participate in the plan. when employees have to sign themselves up, and are not automatically enrolled less than half participate. but putting away 6 percent still might not be enough. t rowe price recommends recommend saving 15 percent or more of your salary toward retirement. if you cannot do that all at ones start saving gradually like adding 2 percent each year. little by little you can build a nest egg that can keep you comfortable for retirement.
