Most military buildings vulnerable to earthquakes: report
SEOUL, May 2 (Yonhap) -- Most military buildings in South Korea are at risk to damage during a major earthquake as they were not designed to withstand the strain caused by seismic waves, a report said Monday.

The report, released by Rep. Song Young-sun of the minor opposition Future Hope Alliance, found that 76 percent of 4,799 military structures incorporate no aspects of quake-resistant design.
