Advantages of steel buildings

Are steel buildings earthquake proof? My 11 year old son asked last night. I really don’t know what is the exact answer to his question. I also wonder how durable are the steel buildings are when a high intensity earthquake strikes compared to buildings made of concrete.  But  one thing i know for sure, they do not collapsed as fast as concrete buildings, so i believe buildings made of steel is a safer place not just against earthquake but for other natural disasters like tornadoes, wind storms and sand storms.

Other advantages of steel buildings are their being resistant to termites. Also a steel building is very easy to assemble, with concrete, wooden, and brick buildings you will take a lot of time in the construction and will cost more due to labor.
