  19. 19. Causes of the Catastrophe: Focus very close to the ground (only 13 km fromground surface) Most houses poorly constructed, buildingcodes not properly followed Dense urban environment Lack of Earthquake preparation (People in someearthquakes have saved lives after getting alarmfrom warning systems) Lack of proper rescue and relief (China mobilizedits military effectively to save many lives) 19 BTRTC/01
  20. 20. What can we learn from it? We have similar infrastructures and haphazardurban development Building codes are not properly followed Our only international airport has no Earthquakeemergency plan (The airport in Haiti was only halffunctioning at the time of Earthquake) Our economical condition is too low to provideimmediate relief in case of disasters 20 BTRTC/01
