Abstract
Diqing is located in Northwestern Yunnan, where has many strong earthquakes. It is worth to study the seismic risk of Diqing. In this paper, we investigated the numbers, taxonomy and vulnerability of the buildings in Diqing and assessed the distribution of each type of buildings in every town. Then we made an scenario-based seismic risk assessment for the towns in Diqing. Our study indicated that if a M7.0 earthquake happened in Lijiang, it may cause serious casualties in Diqing with a casualty more than 1000 and more than 18000 houses destructed.
