Svalbard seed vault shakes off earthquake

I thought that only polar bears would be affected by this earthquake, but they are making a big seed vault there! That was a nifty article! Of course, a hole blasted into a hill of solid granite could shake off any earthquake. They reported 'no damage', but something like this should have broad-band seismometers, or accelerometers, just for fun.

Funny, the article said that buildings with "more than a floor" were at more risk. Something that's just a floor is a pretty simple building! I guess they meant "more than ONE floor."
