19. It's actually not accurate to say 'it was designed to withstand'
because it wasn't. It was a question raised to the structural engineers AFTER the design was done, and they said 'oh yeah, it could withstand that'. Not the other way around. They didn't design the buildings 'with' this scenario in mind. Other way around.
