Mexico City never knew how many at risk of collapse in an earthquake

10 Nov 2017, LA Times

Mexico City is filled with buildings that are especially vulnerable to earthquakes. In order to make the building earthquake resilient, they need to be retrofitted with stronger concrete columns and steel design. There still has not been a public discourse or education on resilient building, a crucial step in mandatory retrofitting to meet any opposition.
