Reducing the effects of the earthquakes

Richer people who live in MEDC's can afford to have their homes made earthquake proof.

  • Shock absorbers
  • Cross-bracing
  • Computer controlled movable weights. These can move to make the building sway the opposite way, to keep it stable.
  • Automatic shutters to prevent windows from shattering
