Hundreds of Chinese citizens have fled terrified by the tremor of a skyscraper in the city of Shenzhen, near Hong Kong. It is the SEG Plaza, a 70-storey building almost 300 meters high, which had to be evacuated after a series of unexplained tremors for now. The skyscraper was completed in 2000 and is one of the tallest in China.
The Shenzhen emergency management bureau indicated on the Weibo social network that it will verify the causes of the oscillation of the building since “no tremor was recorded in the city”.
Ruling out an earthquake, suspicion of the quality of a dizzying construction hovers in this rapidly expanding metropolis, home to technology giants. Experts have so far found no safety anomalies in the structure, but the investigation is still open.
It so happens that a hotel in this city also recently collapsed due to poor construction, causing the death of 29 people.
