When it comes to the Wellington Town Hall, why strengthen to 100 per cent NBS?
100 per cent NBS is not a 100 per cent guarantee. It is just a number.
Why not 150 per cent NBS? What if a 400 per cent NBS earthquake strikes the Town Hall?
33 per cent NBS provides the same risk as flying commercially – strengthen to that.
600 people committed suicide last year. 500 in total have died by earthquake since 1840. Just saying. DAVID KERNOHAN
