What to do when an earthquake
Whenever there is a possibility of earthquake, you should get out of the house or any building and go to the open place. If the street is very narrow or there are multi-storey buildings nearby, then instead of getting out, stay at a safe place in the house. Sit in a corner of the room or under any strong furniture, such as a table. Keep a distance from a large cupboard or window, etc.
Try to stay away from trees and electric wires. If there is no strong thing, then sit on a knee by covering a delicate part of the body like head, hands etc. with a thick book or any pillow, etc., by sticking to a strong wall. Use the stairs instead of the elevator to go outside.
