Description:

This magazine article describes how two high-magnitude earthquakes (7.6 in both instances) triggered landslides in El Salvador and Taiwan which caused extensive damage and loss of life, apart from the shaking of the earthquakes themselves. The article points out that the two areas have common features- tectonically very active, high steep slopes and deeply weathered material, that made the landslides almost inevitable.
