What happens to Google area modeled prior to disasters?

Does Google reinterpret their geo-modeling evaluations for 3D models made that were pre-existent to disasters? i.e., earthquakes, tornadoes, tsunami; many regions are effected just in recent events... Are the buildings modeled on Google Earth that are now in reality in ruins held in the database for a certain time?

The 3D Warehouse can hold any types of models, while the goal for the 3d buildings layer in Google Earth is to reflect the current reality, so theoretically, if damaged buildings are reviewed again, they would be rejected.

But I don't believe that the Geo team takes action themselves to erase a region that suffered from a disaster (that would not be tactful).

I myself had modelled my first building shortly after it was burned down. The satellite imagery has never been updated (still not today) but the building is already reconstructed. In Google Earth are also plenty of ugly monochrome models from the first days of 3D Warehouse (when the criteria were too loose) and the problem is that Google does not find those buildings anymore. As long as a model is not reviewed again, it can't be rejected.
