This phenomenon, called liquefaction, causes much of the destruction associated with an earthquake in liquefaction-prone areas. The Earth Science Picture of the Day (EPOD) highlights the diverse processes and phenomena which shape our planet and our lives. Furthermore, sectors usually do not have an adequate understanding of the effect a curtailment of service can have on other sectors.

Although severely damaged, the building did not appear in danger of collapse, even at the end of the test sequence.” Based on the successful completion of these tests, and lessons learned from thousands of earthbag structures around the world, about a dozen groups have chosen to build with earthbags in Haiti – a country with high risk of earthquakes, floods and hurricanes.
