jujuy: argentinian province in the far north east, limiting with Bolivia.
basic wind velocity: instantaneous average velocity on an interval of 3 
seconds, in (or on, or at) open exposure, @ a reference level of 10[m]
source: argentinian code for wind action against structures.
This code is available in the web, and, listen (or better said read 
)carefully please: for free!!!!!!!. Of course, is written in the 2nd 
lenguage of USA (and one day may be the most spoken), that is spanish.

About earthquake, I think that extrapolation is not possible in this 
case. I'll try to find out what is specified for a storage tanks 
quotation for Bolivia which is presently on the road.
