As far as natural disasters go. Tall buildings in Tokyo did well considering there was a 9+ quake 200 miles away. Had it been directly under that city. well that would be like a F5 going through Dallas or OKC. Only the steel beams and columns from a tall building would be standing.Tall buildings in most cases can handle it. I guess a ground rupture from a large quake going through a buildings foundation would be the worst situation.
