One Response to Preparing Historic Buildings and Sites for a Disaster

    Aquí en Lorca ( España) hace un mes en el terremoto los edificios más afectados fueron los de ultima creación que se supone que contemplaban la normativa contra seismos. Sin embargo los más antiguos y que no estaban construidos bajo esta normativa, son los menos afectados ¿ como se Explica eso ?
