    In Germany, during the last couple disasters we had (which were floods, but obviously on a much smaller scale) authorities actively turned away volunteers because liability in case of injury was not settled, and you can't have that, can you? So they also tried to self-organize and do what they thought needed doing, but since everyone who actually knows disaster management was not allowed to give any kind of guidance, quite a few of them did more harm than good, e.g. incorrectly piling sand bags onto failing dikes, thus creating flood waves when they inevitably collapsed - or extra work for the official workers who were supposed to strengthen the dike in question but first had to remove the volunteers' sand bags.

    Now, there is thought being given to how to manage volunteers better - after all, in case of floods you do need a ton of work done which can easily be given to unskilled labour with minimal professional oversight, if you have proper procedures in place. Having volunteers do that would free professionals up for the jobs only they can do, but, you know, liability and insurance... so instead you keep your well trained disaster relief personnel shoveling sand into bags.

    Technically Mexico counts. Shallow 7.1 hit just a bit south of Mexico City in a densely populated area.

    That's what happens when you live in a city that can't even handle earthquakes of magnitude 7.
