During February and March, powerful earthquakes shook parts of Chile, Japan, Indonesiaand Turkey. Predicting earthquakes is quite difficult so we cannot avoid them. However, we can learn a few things and prepare ourselves to survive an earthquake.
If you are in a moving bus, car and any other vehicle, stop as quickly as possible and do not leave the vehicle. However, avoid stopping under or near trees, utility wires and buildings.
If you are outdoors, stay away from streetlights and buildings.
If you are indoors, stay within the building until tremors stop, stay away from any object that could crumble, such as glass windows, furniture and lighting fixture.
