Garbage landslide flattens 33 Apartment Buildings (China)

Just heard about this today, thought there would be a thread already! (or am i blind?)

China landslide: Rescuers search for 85 people still missing - BBC News

Quote:
Hundreds of rescue workers are looking for survivors after a landslide hit 33 buildings in the southern Chinese city of Shenzhen.

Seven people were pulled from the rubble with minor injuries but 85 are still missing. About 900 were evacuated as the landslide struck on Sunday.

Authorities said a huge man-made mound of earth and construction debris lost stability and collapsed.

The city is one of China's biggest and is a major industrial centre.

It is situated in the southern province of Guangdong, across the mainland border from Hong Kong.

The landslide has blanketed a vast area of 380,000 sq m (455,000 sq yards) covering it with up to 10m (32ft) of mud at an industrial park, Shenzhen's emergency management office said on its official microblog.

State news agency Xinhua said that the landslide caused an explosion at a natural gas pipeline. Workers have cleaned up about 400m of damaged pipeline and are now repairing it.



China's land and resources ministry said in a statement on its website that initial investigations showed the landslide happened when a huge mound of soil, cement chunks and other construction waste became unstable.

"Because the mound was very large, and the angle of its slope was overly steep, this led to it losing stability and collapsing," it said.

People's Daily said the mound had accumulated at a stone quarry that had been converted into a dumping area with its entrance and exit facing an industrial district.

Not surprise. Anyone who actually been to China (not just the tourist attractions) shouldn't be surprise at all. It seems to be that most buildings in China don't really follow a standard building code like we do here (At least apartments that's less than 10 floor or so). Very little machinery is being used for apartments that's less than 10 floor (I seen workers just placing bricks on top of one an another to build a small shop). They also mix concrete with hands which is really bad, you need to use a machine to mix them.

Waiting for Gululu to come and defend China and how this is all fake and again the west is trying to bring down China. Nothing like this will ever happen in China because they all follow the laws.

I think a lot of taller apartments in large city are pretty safe. Just the ones in smaller cities and not as high that's when there are issues.
