Dear all

It is indeed an unfortunate incident - resulting in the loss of life and
property.

But we should also try and understand the Japanese designs and
techniques which have resulted in the rather controlled loss - as far as
human lives are concerned. Though it happened in a rural area yet it
must have been somewhat populated.

For us it could be a good learning.

Regards
Pankaj Nigam

23 PERISH AS QUAKES ROCK JAPAN

October 25, 2004 -- OJIYA, Japan - Tens of thousands of people huddled
in emergency shelters yesterday after a series of earthquakes in
northern Japan flattened homes, toppled bridges and derailed trains,
killing at least 23 and injuring as many as 2,000.
A 6.8-magnitude quake rocked the largely rural Niigata prefecture
Saturday evening, rattling buildings as far away as Tokyo.

Several strong quakes followed through the night, and aftershocks jolted
the area early this morning, one a magnitude of 5.6.

The government said 23 people were killed and 1,232 were injured.

Public broadcaster NHK, citing hospital data, said more than 2,000 were
injured.

The dead included five children, the youngest a 2-month-old.

The quakes tore apart highways, burst water and sewage mains, and
knocked out power to nearly 300,000 homes.

Some 61,000 people, many of them elderly, had to be evacuated.

Hospitals were so overwhelmed, the injured were being treated in the
hallways.
