Disaster preparedness matters: just six deaths following the big Chile earthquake

I was doing further reading on the Chile earthquake (and the two pretty big ones that followed), and this surprised me: only 6 deaths occurred as a result of the 8.2 quake.

I'm pretty sure that's unprecedented for an earthquake of this magnitude. Hoorah for building codes and people who learn their lessons. More should.
