For stabilization and
reconstruction electrical power
will be required. Quite apart
from damage due to the
earthquake, poles carrying
overhead wires and conduits
carrying wires below ground can
also fall victim to the tsunami.
The Istanbul metro light rail
alone will consume serious
resources to verify and repair.
As was observed in the recent
earthquake in China,
hydroelectric and ordinary dams
as well as pipelines can be very
vulnerable.
