Summary
Recent earthquakes around the world have demonstrated the fragility of infrastructure, including construction stock. Using Puerto Rico as a case study, we explore how to support buildings and communities vulnerable to disasters. We identify the best ways to adapt a house or residence and discuss daily practices to reduce the dangers of seismic activity.
