Simple seismic modifications could save lives

This is an interesting article. Shows that some simple modifications in the way you lay out your infill walls, make things much better.

I've seen lots of schools in Toronto that take everything from the 'bad book' of seismic effects. If they are on soft ground, as well, they don't have a chance. Of course, everything is much worse at 'Ground Zero' in Hamilton-Burlington.
