What to do and what not to do in case of an earthquake?
If you are inside a building, sit on the floor and stay under sturdy furniture. If there is no table or such furniture, cover your face and head with your hands and sit in a corner of the room. If you are outside a building during an earthquake, stay away from buildings, trees, poles and wires. If you are traveling in a vehicle during an earthquake, stop the vehicle as soon as possible and stay inside the vehicle. If you are buried under rubble, never light a match, do not move, or use any force. If you are buried under debris, tap lightly on a pipe or wall to help rescuers understand your position. If you have a whistle, blow it. Make noise only when there is no other option.
