Shenzhen Wobbling Skyscraper

The SEG Plaza in Shenzhen inexplicably began to shake at around 1pm, prompting an evacuation of people inside. No earthquake was recorded in the area, and the authorities are investigating both the cause and the impact.

Film on YouTube

The building in the Futian district was closed by 2.40pm. The tower was built in 2000 and is reportedly 356 metres tall.

It is home to manufacturer Shenzhen Electronics Group (SEG) and various offices. The structure is the 18th tallest tower in this booming Chinese city.

One observer on YouTube states the following, which sounds plausible, but would need verification:

“It will be due to vortex shedding. If the wind is at a speed that causes vortexes to shed with a timing that is a harmonic of the buildings natural frequency, each shed will give the building a slightly bigger push, like building momentum on a swing. With other tall buildings around, it will likely only be an issue with wind at a specific speed from a specific direction.”
