Description
This report is based on two accounts from EERI members. Marshall Lew, AMEC, Los Angeles, CA, made a one-day visit on May 28th to Lushan County of Ya’an City in Sichuan Province in southwestern China; Yu Xiao, urban planner, College Station, TX, paid a two-day visit to the same area in early June. Because Lushan County was one of the 41 severely damaged areas in the 2008 Wenchuan earthquake, the main goal of Xiao’s field visit was to determine whether lessons from the previous quake are being used to guide emergency management, temporary shelter/housing, and recovery planning. After her visit, she received updates from contact persons in China.
