No fatalities reported yet for the largest quake in 25 years? That seems pretty impressive.

I have to guess that the years of tightening up enforcement of earthquake preparedness played a big part in that.

One death reported now, but yeah for a quake that strong it seems handled well.

Won't someone think of the shareholder value that was lost by complying with these onerous earthquake building regulations?

I'm going to be a pessimist here: China is paying close attention. A natural disaster would make a perfect smokescreen for an invasion of Taiwan.

Yeah this was pretty scary. Luckily we were ok here, just some things fell over and some scared pets but no injuries.
