Every day there is an Earthquake in New Zealand. There are more than 14,000 earthquakes around the country each year. Around 200 of these earthquakes are big which felt normally but the rest of the earthquakes are too small and not noticed.
If your building is more than 45 years old, there is big risk to pull a part in earthquakes. Most of the old building don’t have good foundation and even don’t have enough strength against the earthquakes.
