Let us check different precautions we should take when an earthquake occurs.

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.
