Forewarned is forearmed, especially when it comes to earthquakes. Fortunately, not all of us have experienced their consequences, but we surely should know what to do in case of one. Even if we live in a safe area, this doesn’t mean we’ll never face this danger.
The Bright Side’s team combined the recommendations of the Red Cross and the United Nations experts on the impact of natural disasters for you to know how to stay safe during an earthquake.
- Hide in a doorway. It’s a dangerous myth: a doorframe can fall right on your head.
- Run outdoors if you’re above the first floor. Elevators and stairs are extremely dangerous during earthquakes.
