A Big wake up call..

        Any natural disaster is an unfortunate, it seems like we are moving in to the professional state of work and also laziness neglecting the importance of fellow beings.

         Im talking about the earthquake disaster that struck Haiti,one of the fastest growing city in Latin America.It was a Mega city with full of architectural buildings covering history of French,American and British Revolutions along with its own moz-screenshotHaiti revolution.After 2010 earthquake its full of rubble and dust, no perfect remains of any old buildings, The Presidential Palace was badly damaged, with the second floor entirely collapsing onto the first floor; the Haitian Parliament building, UN mission headquarters and the National Cathedral were also destroyed.

         The problem is Earthquake will not destroy people but buildings do .

The most concern is that for every 10 years 2 cities are in to full rubble.Every Mega city in this world is prone to atleast one earthquake for every 250 years. But seeing the latest stats seismologists are pressing their nose! Its also said that for the next 25 years top 25 growing cities will be hit by Earthquake with atleast 4-6 Richter scale. List is leading with Tokyo, Istanbul, Tehran, Mexico City, New Delhi, Kathmandu or the two metropolises near California's San Andreas Fault, Los Angeles and San Francisco. Or it could devastate Dhaka, Jakarta, Karachi, Manila, Cairo, Osaka, Lima or Bogota. The list goes on and on.

            Had any one woke up?? Yes,The difference was back in 2006 Istanbul drafted an "earthquake master plan" that involved strengthening building codes, mandating earthquake insurance, and reinforcing schools and hospitals with new walls, stronger columns, and other retrofits. Will other cities follow suit?
