Container house- A suitable type for the seismic zone

08 Jun

The continuous earthquakes are occurring constantly, which makes people worry, typically in Japan, in April, there were more than 30 earthquakes, including a 6,2 richter hurricance struck hard on the volcanic island of Tokyo.

The Japanese Hydrometeorology Forecasting& Service Division said that the largest earthquake shook violently Miyake Island, at 175km southern distance from Tokyo, at around 3:57p.m. (Local time), at the depth of 20km and making no danger of a tsunami.

AFP quoted that Agency’s report: “There are some slight changes in sea level along the coast of Japan but there is no concern about earthquake damage”.

In 2000, a volcanic eruption caused the entire 3.800 residents of Miyake to evacuate. However, according to that Agency, there is no sign showing that volcano’s activities are increasing.

Vibration can be felt over a broad area, including Tokyo where the police reported that there are 3 people have suffered minor injuries. In Tokyo, the office of Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has set up a committee to manage the situation.

Japan is one of the countries having most earthquakes in the world.  The heart of this morning earthquake is near the center of the Kobe earthquake in 1995. In 1995, a 7, 2 Richter earthquake made 6.400 die. 16 years later, in May 3rd, 2011, a northeastern earthquake along with a tsunami killed nearly 19.000 persons and caused a nuclear disaster.

It’s time to think of solutions to deal with the earthquake, with seismic zones that earthquakes occur so often, houses are easily collapsed, companies fall into bankruptcy easily because all property has been ruined and damaged. Some countries have adopted containers to make the container house or container office instead of the usual one.
