Abstract:

In recent years, catastrophic earthquakes and tsunamis have occurred in many regions of the world, particularly in the Pacific Rim region wherein British Columbia (BC) lies. The devastating human and economic impacts resulting from these seismic events will require years, and in some cases, decades of recovery. In BC, the majority of the population resides in an earthquake hazard area. Annually, a few thousand earthquakes occur in and adjacent to BC. According to experts, an earthquake capable of causing structural damage can be expected to occur somewhere in the province about once every 10 years. These earthquakes are large enough to cause significant damage if they occur in a highly populated area.
