This week, South Korea experienced two strong earthquakes centered near Gyeongju city, including a magnitude-5.8 quake that was the largest ever recorded in the ROK. Before these events, due to seismic activity earlier this year in Japan, as well as aftershocks felt in South Korea, some were beginning to ask if a whether a major seismic event could also hit the ROK & if buildings, bridges & other infrastructure could survive.
