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.

Miyamoto Global Disaster Relief

Nonprofit Earthquake Engineering Experts

Miyamoto ReliefMiyamoto Relief is the only nonprofit structural engineering organization in the world providing technical expertise before, during and after a disaster. Our mission is to save thousands of lives through state-of-the-art engineering in communities in need. Miyamoto Relief works globally to save lives through engineering, especially in places affected by disaster. One of the reasons we exist is to send teams of engineers to help affected populations after an earthquake. This is particularly important in developing countries, where the lack of engineering knowledge is critical for the life safety of community.

This is a really cool VR project we did in #LosAngeles with our friends at Gensler. Great "take you there" read, WIRED! So what do engineers do on a project like this? Design the complex VR equipment and cable support system so it works in the existing building! #IMAX

On the anniversary of Haiti's devastating 2010 earthquake, Miyamoto and PROCHE representatives presented to University of Notre Dame students, the director and other representatives of the civil society of JACMEL on Thursday. The discussion focused on earthquakes, why so much destruction occurred in 2010 and innovative methods in use since then for a more resilient Haiti using local materials. Among those presenting was Miyamoto engineer Beverly St Come. The questions were so interesting, the discussions lasted well beyond the planned time. #centrepolyvalente #haitiearthquake
