  • I've been in some pretty strong earthquakes and the instinct is very strong to get outside, and I think that is the safest place. Buildings crumble and fall. It's not ike a tornado or cyclone where you are safer inside someplace secure.

  • Trees aren't such a huge danger either in an earthquake. They tend to shake and drop fruit if they have any, but not to actually come crashing down. It's just a ground shake and they have roots.

  • Wow! I never thought about that. I guess I would at least try to get out of the house before it cave in. I really truly believe you can't escape an earthquake. All you can really do is try to remain calm and don't panic.
