   In addition to ''About'' and Sidney options, you could say "fragile soil" (and other ways as well, but this one was the first I found).

"It is very fragile soil. It couldn't hold. The houses came down, destroying the ones below them," Guerreiro told Globo TV. "It was a tragedy foretold."

 I sympathise with the people in Rio, even because, I had at least one friend that lost his life. He was sleeping at home when a heavy stone flattened his apartment in the third story of  a three-story building.  Except him, no nobody else were home; if were,  the death toll would be bigger. It´s a pity...
