Answer :

Following measures will be taken in our house when the earthquake occurs:

1. Drop down and take cover under a desk or table and hold on because it is the quickest way to protect ourselves. DO NOT use the elevators or lifts. Figure below illustrates the same.



2. Stay away from glass windows because glass can shatter during an earthquake and can cause harm.


3. Stay away from items that can fall and injure us like Furniture, fireplaces, fans, bookcases etc.


4. If you are in the bed stay there protecting your head with a pillow.


5. Turn off the water, gas and electricity mains switch because leakage of gas or water can cause the harm.
