But the issue over buildings is interesting. Buildings have failed predominantly due to being already unsafe. Many many brick buildings, many are old, they have now all gone or are going. The issues with homes is different. Being small, they are strong laterally. Excluding old homes with internal issues, many old and not so old homes that were in the line of fire have got away with minimal structural damage. Because the land is stable and has not shifted laterally or vertically. Many are closer to the epicentres than the badly hit east side, but no matter how good the house ,you have no show on land that fails. That is the fate of the east side.
