Answer

  The precautions to be taken in case we are outside when an earthquake strikes are -

  1. We should stay at a clear spot away from buildings, trees and overhead power lines, so that they do not fall on us.
  2. If we are in covered vehicles, we should not come out of it and drive slowly till we reach a safe place which is free from things that can fall on us and cause injury.
