    • Possible solutions
      If there is an earthquake in the future, they could prepare them selves by having stronger buildings and they could have safe places to hide from them. People should have gone there right after it has happened but they haven't, they have gone a while after so if they have gone right after it happened they could have saved lives and the death rate would have been lesser.
