  • If you are inside, drop to the ground, take cover under a sturdy table or other piece of furniture, and hold on until the shaking stops.
  • If a sturdy table or desk is not available, cover your face and head with your arms and crouch in an inside corner of the room.
  • Stay away from glass, windows, outside doors and walls, and anything that could fall on you, such as lighting fixtures or furniture.
  • Stay inside until the shaking stops and it is safe to go outside. Do not exit a building during shaking.
