Ecuador Earthquake Damage spans
200-km coastline

April 16, 2016 • 7.8-magnitude earthquake

As the death toll from the April 16, 7.8-magnitude earthquake in Ecuador continued to rise, the magnitude of the disaster came more clearly into focus. The earthquake struck off the west coast of Ecuador, injuring 2,500 people and killing more than 670 people. The area severely affected was huge, stretching more than 200 km along the Ecuadorian coastline. Read Dr. Miyamoto’s daily journals about our response in Ecuador.

  • Miyamoto, they bring all the expertise, taking into account the seismic area that we are in. – Richard T. Hale III, The Hale Corp.

  • They can be counted upon for creative solutions that balance risk from the perspective of a principal. We value their work with the highest regard. – Kipp Blewett, Rubicon Partners

  • There are dangerous buildings everywhere on earth. Unless we speak out and build better, we will see many more of  these tragedies in our lifetimes. – Kit Miyamoto

  • It is nice to see the proactive approach you and your team have undertaken for Nepal earthquake… I still remember one of your slides, which says, ‘There is a cost for doing nothing.’ – Tamorish Kole, Society for Emergency Medicine, India


  • Yeah… Save people. Protect people. Teach; it is your mission … Never stop moving to the end of the world to do the best things. – Facebook Follower

  • As structural engineers, we have a responsibility to prevent these disasters. – Kit Miyamoto

  • After talking to Miyamoto, we decided to do a complete retrofitting of the structure as well as an expansion. An earthquake by itself is not a fatality. It is how you build that makes the difference. – Richard Buteau, Karibe Hotel Owner

  • This building can withstand an unlimited number of earthquakes. That’s the difference… In the event of a major earthquake, this airport will be the center of emergency response for Southern California. – Dan Feger, Executive Director, Bob Hope Airport

Kathmandu, Nepal Earthquake

April 25, 2015 • 7.8-magnitude earthquake

On April 25, 2015 Kathmandu, Nepal was struck by a  7.8-magnitude earthquake. In the immediate aftermath of the earthquake, many large organizations stepped up to provide immediate relief by supplying food and water, temporary shelter and medical support. While this support is critical, we provided expert earthquake structural engineering and reconstruction advice quickly, such as assessing whether homes and buildings are safe to re-enter and helping locals develop a plan for rebuilding or retrofitting to seismic standards that will withstand the next large earthquake. Contact our Nepal office.

To date, we have more than 90 damage-assessment projects completed for private and public organizations and international agencies and many retrofit projects underway.

Dr. Tom Nifuku will address ASCE in Sacramento tomorrow, Tuesday, August 22. An expert in disaster-risk assessment and resilience enhancement of structures and infrastructure systems, his approach to seismic risk analysis has made him an international thought leader in business continuity planning and highway network recovery. Tom works with many international organizations such as the World Bank, USAID, United Nations, and international governments and municipalities to evaluate and help manage seismic risks for regions such as Haiti, Mongolia, Latin Americas, Myanmar, Nepal and the U.S. #riskmanagement #disasterplanning #sacramento

Internships are a great way to figure out what you want to do with your life. Earlier this year, Georgia Tech student Maggie Lindsey interned with our nonprofit, Miyamoto Relief, in Kathmandu. It's so fabulous to see her featured in Global Atlanta, a publication that focuses on international stories from a local Atlanta, Georgia perspective. Miyamoto Relief staff say it was a delight to have Maggie intern with us!

Many thanks to the Bomberos de Zapopan in Jalisco for interviewing us in Guadalajara, Mexico about the preparedness and risk mitigation program we assist communities with through our USAID/OFDA partners. Worldwide, more and more municipalities and communities are implementing prevention strategies to minimize earthquake risk. Que fabuloso!
