BEIJING: At least 47 people were killed and almost 300 injured when two shallow earthquakes struck northwest China early Monday, an official told AFP, as rescuers battled to reach survivors in the remote, mountainous area.  "More than 21,000 buildings were severely damaged and more than 1,200 have collapsed," said the official at the earthquake bureau in Gansu province, where the 5.9 and 5.6 magnitude tremors struck.

Dear Sefians,

Good Afternoon


This EQ is another man-made disaster this is not the nature's fury i would say, if you will see buildings the first thing that come's to mind by seeing the


 building in pic at youtube  is soft storey,torsion which can shake and amplified the rotation in buildings. Although i personally feel that chineses codes 


are very good  as they have copied all good points from various codes and complied there own.but unfortunately i thing they overrule the EQ design


 principles for so called project economics. Although it is only 5.9 in magnitude the one in new zealand was of even of more intensity there even precast 


which is considered as susceptible in case of EQ were standing tall. I personally feel we should not fear of EQ but should definitely fear how we


 DESIGN.  


These are my personal views.


Regard's
