Earthquake in Italy
At least 73 people have died in a earthquake in Italy that measured 6.2 on the scale.
The fault line runs along the centre of Italy, is it wise to build near fault lines.
I think New York is similar and only a matter of time before a similar thing happens there
Re: Earthquake in Italy
Sadly the new casualty figures are much higher. There's an amazing picture in today's Telegraph which show almost all of the old stone houses collapsed around a standing modern style building. When Italy reconstructs the towns they should look to Japan and West Coast USA building regulations for earthquake resilient buildings.
