You're inside a building when an earthquake strikes

earthquake survivalIf you are indoors when the earth starts shaking, take cover under a sturdy table or desk. If that isn't possible, FEMA advises you to cover your head and crouch in a corner. Stay away from windows and watch out for falling objects, such as light fixtures and bookshelves.

Do not shelter yourself in a doorway unless you know it to be a load-bearing doorway. Be sure to remain indoors until the shaking stops. Earthquakes often are followed by damaging aftershocks.
