This Google Map mashup animates through the 20 most earthquake vulnerable cities in the world. The data for the map comes from Forbes.com.

The cities are chosen not necessarily for the chance of an earthquake hitting but take into account factors such as building frailty, potential for landslides and fires, and the rescue, fire-fighting and life-saving medical abilities of local authorities.
