At least 58 aftershocks have been recorded after the two destructive M5.4 seismic events that struck the southeastern part of the Republic of Korea on September 12 and November 15, 2017, while concerns have been raised about the three nuclear reactors that are located in the vicinity of the Yangsan Fault, responsible for the quakes.
On Monday, November 20th, the Georgia Dome – an 80,000-capacity stadium that opened in 1992 and hosted events in the 1996 Atlanta Olympics, was torn down. More than 2,000kg of explosives were used for the implosion, which took place at 7:30 a.m. , and was covered by the local media. The stadium, which was also the Falcons’ home for the past 25 years, was one of the country’s largest domed stadiums and its construction had cost $214m. It is now replaced by the adjacent, newly erected $1.6 billion Mercedes-Benz Stadium, which opened in August this year.
