Although Malaysia is located outside the Pacific Ring of Fire and no major earthquakes have struck the peninsula so far, experts agree that the possibility of the Big One hitting, cannot be ruled out. Tremors were felt from the catastrophic 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake near Sumatra, Indonesia, a quake measuring 6.0 in magnitude rocked Ranau, Sabah in 2015 and a 4.0-magnitude earthquake hit the area around Mount Kinabalu in 2016. And we are still shocked at the most recent episodes of destruction and death in Lombok and Bali that claimed more than 100 innocent lives. Could it be edging closer towards the most densely populated area in Malaysia – the Klang Valley? Could there be reactivation of old fault lines beneath Kuala Lumpur that can trigger earthquakes? What are the safety aspects of buildings to withstand earthquake tremors especially since many structures in the area were not built and designed to withstand earthquakes? What is the extent of the Klang Valley’s preparedness for earthquake? Is there any early detection and warning system in place? Is there any contingency plan for the city folks if an earthquake strikes? These are some of the thought-provoking issues that will be discussed in the seminar by the invited speakers.
