Romania is a country with severe seismic conditions: more than half of its territory is subjected, periodically, to earthquakes having intensities I = VII … IX MM. After the strong earthquake of November, 1940 (Richter M = 7.4), another severe seismic event occurred on March 4, 1977; it produced heavy damage: 32 high-rise buildings collapsed in Bucharest, two small towns - Zimnicea and Alexandria- were, practically, destroyed. About 3000 people were killed and 12,000 injured.
