Taiwan Shallow Thrust Earthquake


This has been a shallow thrust earthquake, the only type that can do real damage.  There is no earthquake warning for this.  No deadly earthquake can have an effective early warning.  The only solution is to put everything on piles.  A wonderful early warning system like in Taiwan only makes everybody happy, until their building falls down.  Had this been an m7, that tilted building wouldn't be intact.

'Social physics' demands more early warning systems.  :)
