Dear Engrs.,
Remembering the

Deadly,Destructive Northridge

Earthquake on the 25th Anniversary.

Loss :  
The death toll was 57, with more than 8,700 injured. In addition, property

damage was estimated to be between

$13 and $50 billion,  

making it one of the costliest natural

disasters in U.S. history..  

We as structural Engineers know very well that  EARTHQUAKES  DO NOT KILL PEOPLE BUT BUILDINGS  DO .    
Here is a simple reminder of that .  Question today asked in California , USA is HOW MUCH WE ARE  PREPARED  FOR THE NEXT ONE ?

I know that Govt. agencies like NDMA  and GSDMA have  worked  very hard in last few years ,  for public safety  in case of  the  next  major Earthquake Event in India . However it is good to raise this question " How much we are prepared for the next major earthquake  India ?


Regards.
