  • Indoors: DROP, take COVER under a sturdy table or desk and HOLD ON. If that’s not possible, take shelter near an interior wall or by furniture that won’t fall over, and cover your head and neck with your arms.
  • Stay away from windows, fireplaces, appliances and furniture that may tip over and objects that may fall.
  • Stay where you are; after the shaking stops, go to a designated evacuation site.
  • Outside: Stay in open area away from buildings, power lines, trees, street lights and utility wires.
