According to reports, A skyscraper in southern China triggered widespread panic when it suddenly started shaking.
As per to details, The 300-metre (1,000-foot) SEG Plaza in the southern city of Shenzhen near Hong Kong started swaying on Tuesday, prompting people inside and those on the streets below to flee.
The Emergency management officials of China sharply ruled out an earthquake as the cause of the wobble in the tech hub’s Futian district, They said that no further movement had been detected and experts found “no safety abnormalities in the main structure and surrounding environment of the building”
The officials said that the building had stopped shaking by the time people were evacuated and the plaza remained sealed off.
It must be noted that building collapses are not rare in China, where lax construction standards and breakneck urbanization over recent decades has led to buildings being thrown up in haste, Poor construction standards are often linked to corruption among local officials, most recently after the collapse of a isolation hotel in southern China last year.
