Do you know what to do during an earthquake? When the ground starts shaking you should: DROP to the ground, take COVER by getting under a sturdy desk or table, and HOLD ON to it until the shaking stops. If there isn't a table or desk near you, drop to the ground in an inside corner of the building and cover your head and neck with your hands/arms. Do NOT try to run to another room just to get under a table. For more information about Drop, Cover, and Hold on visit: http://www.dropcoverholdon.org/
