List of large earthquakes on one month:

Low strength houses and other structures are the cause of rising death tolls. In the world masonry structures occupied the most percentage of graph, which are less strong than concrete and steel structures. In Pakistan most of the houses on affected area are of unreinforced masonry structures which collapsed with leaving dust on air and trapping people underneath. Public awareness about the instantaneous safety during earthquake and economical safety features inside the house like strong tables, beds etc for hide can reduce death tolls in such situation.
