Highly dangerous


I hope that time will prove me wrong but I fear that there is a disaster just waiting to happen due to the building of very tall structures in known earthquake areas.

I fear that one day we will hear that one of these structures has simply fallen over due to a major earthquake and if it is in an area where more than one such building exists there could be a multiple disaster due to the domino effect.
