Impact of downtown quake considered over three days

The four downtown districts of the San Jose’s central canton are 12.5 kilometers square and during the day contain the greater part of the professional population of the country.

How will this area and occupants be affected by a major earthquake? That is the question experts have been considering for three days through today in a detailed study of the possibilities and impact of a quake.

The session was set up by the Comisión Nacional de Prevención de Riesgos y Atención de Emergencias and the World Bank.

Those at the session in the Hotel Wyndham San José Herradura are considering the impact of various models with different parameters and vulnerabilities of the area, the commission said.
