Nepal Quake and Construction Types


Being Catholic I thought you might find this of interest.

I enjoy your site, have your book Surviving the Economic Collapse beside me as I write, and value your insight. If you are ever of a mind to write any of your observations as to what happens to healthcare in a system under collapse (economy) I'd be happy to have it offered on my survival medical forum.

Thanks Reasonable Rascal, that's pretty interesting. It is noticeable that in most cases it was poorly built structures that collapsed most catastrophically. Without a doubt, this raises the number of victims. In more developed nations with proper seismic construction codes the fatality rate would be much lower.
