Earthquake in Taiwan

Postby Dizzy28 » April 2nd, 2024, 9:06 pm

There was a massive 7.4 earthquake in Taiwan. It's around 9am there so I'm guessing lots of vids will soon emerge with good lighting

It's strange how buildings in Taiwan fall and lean that way

Could happen out in west moorings with all the tall buildings being built on reclaimed land.

Need to send foundation straight down to bedrock

It's been said (on Al Jazeera coverage at least) that Taiwan's strict building codes is the reason that many of the structures are leaning and haven't collapsed outright.

I suppose it's just a testament to the quality of construction. Somewhere like India or China every last building would have already collapsed as if made from cardboard and tinfoil.

I think a local study suggested buildings in POS would just sink
