Small earthquakes can cause serious damage?
Damage is not just structural.
Falling building components or heavy equipment, cause most of the damage, losses and injuries, during and after an earthquake.
70%-85% of construction cost goes into non-structural components. Most services and operations depend on them. They are also the most vulnerable to earthquakes.
Non-structural damage canstrongly influence the ability of communities to cope with and recover from earthquakes.
