It depends upon whether we are indoor or outdoor
If we are indoor (inside house or building)
- Hide under a table
- If in bed, protect your head with a pillow
- Stay away from tall,heavy objects which may fall on you
If we are Outdoor
- If we are in car/bus,do not come out
- If we are out in open,find a spot which is away from building or tree and sit there until tremor stops.
