How would Vancouver perform in an earthquake?

March 11th, 2011 · 58 Comments

Watching the non-stop news on Japan and thinking of the earthquake in Christchurch, you have to wonder what exactly would happen in Vancouver if there were a similar earthquake.

The tsunami rolling through the Sendai airport made me wonder about our airport. The stories of buildings pancaking in Christchurch made me think about how buildings in Vancouver might do.

Do we have the kinds of protections in place that Japan does, as outlined in this NYT story?
