Is the Baram Dam Quake-proof?

The controversial Baram dam has recently come into the spotlight again following the 5.9 magnitude earthquake that struck northwest of Ranau, Sabah. The dam is one of 12 dams the Sarawak state government intends to build as part of its efforts to fully industrialize the state by year 2030. Revelations that 40 fault lines lie beneath Sarawak and may have devastating consequences on the dam is stirring public concerns over what may be at stake for the local community and the environment. Today we ask if the dam is built to withstand a catastrophic quake.

This is a report by Wong Yu Han.
