What to do to be saved during the earthquake

Though earthquakes and occur only in certain parts of the Earth, everyone should know how to behave during them. After all, many attractive tourist countries such as Japan, Indonesia, Italy, the Americas, regularly in shakes. But forewarned is forearmed.

The website systematized for you the red cross and the UN expert on the effects of natural disasters.

  • Hiding in the doorway. This is a dangerous myth: your head may strike the door jamb.
  • To run outside, if you are above the second floor. Elevators and stairs are extremely dangerous during zemletryasenii.

  • As soon as you feel the shocks move closer to the outer wall. If the house collapses, so you will find faster.
  • Make sure there is not what may fall: lighting, overhead cabinets.
  • Lie on the floor, better close to the sofa or bed (not under it!): in the collapse of a Cabinet or ceiling, the bed will take a hit, and there is formed a free space. She herself steady and will not fall on you. A good option would be to go close to the wall.
  • Curl up, head in her hands to protect her.

It arouses a lot of controversy. On the one hand, the most common danger during an earthquake is falling objects. If we knew in advance that an earthquake would not be strong enough to bring down the house, it would be safe to hide under the table.

But the more intense earthquakes when the fall of the walls and ceiling, the table will simply crush the man.

From the first shock before a possible collapse you have about 10-20 seconds. It will be great if you use them to leave the building. Do not do this if:

  • You are above the second floor, as has been said.
  • The output is a crowd.
  • You doubt you'll have time less than 10 seconds. In this case, it is likely that you will get hurt trying to get out, is higher than if you remain in place.
To assess the situation, you need to spend time; in an emergency situation make the decision even more difficult.

So you will not fall off the debris and wire. If you are on a bridge or ladder, immediately leave them.
