Life After the Disastrous Earthquake

Posted on January 14, 2013 by team

Gorny Altai, Russia. In autumn 2003 the village Beltir underwent severe destructions resulting from the earthquake. The hypocenter was only three kilometres away from dwelling houses. More than half of all houses were destroyed, 1400 people became homeless. The area was declared to be a disaster zone which was beyond repair. Some time later the main number of locals were resettled but some dozens of people continue their life in the “dead” village that officially does not exist anymore.

An airport used to be here.

    Unbelievably tidy and neat place for Russia.

    In the USA the government examined records to find a place that is safe to live. Blanding, Utah has never had any natural disaster of any kind, ever. It is a lousy place to live: little water, poor soil, no trees, no income other than catering to tourists going to Four Corners. It takes violence to make a place nice to live.
