If Outdoors During Earthquake

I already posted here on what to do when you are at indoors during earthquake, now here’s the continuation of it. Please note that this was taken from the bulletin board of my daughter’s school. This might help all the students to be aware and to do the necessary things during the quake.
If Outdoors:
  • Stay There
  • Move away from buildings, streetlights and utility wires
  • Once in the open, stay there until the shaking stops. The greatest danger exists directly outside buildings, at exits and alongside exterior walls. Many of the 120 fatalities from the 1933 Long Beach earthquake occurred when people ran outside of buildings only to be killed by falling debris from collapsing walls. Ground movement during an earthquake is seldom the direct cause of death or injury. Most earthquake related casualties result from collapsing walls, flying glass and falling objects.
