Overview

Summarises the currently available seismic and engineering data pertai ning to the seismic hazard of the capitals of the Central Asian republ ics. The conclusion is that the risk to residents of these cities is e xtremely high. There is a roughly 40% probability that an earthquake w ill occur near one of the Central Asian republic's capitals within the next 20 years. Such an event will produce ground shaking in the affec ted city equal to the maximum ground shaking experienced in Armenia an d Sakhalin, i.e. MSK IX. The event will cause tens of thousands of fat alities and at least 100,000 serious injuries.
