- Hummmmm Guys there is assessment threats vs frequency and possibilites let me explain it in simple words.
If any aircraft started from T3, heading to bhopal it takes turn near badarpur and crashes due to engine faliure it will hit Gfbd apartment , say your flat, will you be able to survive, at all? ANSWER IS NO.....but what is the possibility of such incident .....might be less than ....0.0000001%
However if you taking shower and sliped in washroom and broke ur head (head injury fatal type) .....what are the chances and probability !!! Chances are very high here, but survival chances are equally good, as in later case frequency or possibilites are less than 0.000001% but the survival chances are almost nil.
So earthquake if it comes more than 7 only than it will demolish buildings be t high rise or low rise or single story makaan. so its a myth that high rise are not safe, infact google it, high rise are safter than ordinary makaans any day.CommentQuote0Flag
- Bhuj is quite far from Ahmadabad.
(Almost same distance as foothills of Himalayas to Delhi).
After the quake only the high rises fell and not a single low rise.
The kind of material builders use is a sure shot recipe of disaster even if a mild earthquake hits NCR.CommentQuote0Flag
- High rise high risk
The higher you go,the harder you fall.
This principle may be applicable if the builder uses substandard material.There may be no real check on the builder.
But buying a high rise from a reputed and established builder may be safe enough from construction strength angle and adherence to appropriate ISO standards as applicable to seismic zones.
Delhi falls under zone (IV). Seismicity around Delhi appears to be associated with a major geological structure, known as the Delhi-Hardwar Ridge.CommentQuote0Flag
