Transcript of Seismological Studies
o Get under a sturdy table, desk or bed
. Go in an inside corner away from windows.
o Move to an inner wall or hall (A door frame or the middle of your house are its strongest points and least likely to collapse.)
o In an apartment building the safest place is by the middle of the building, which is usually located by the elevator.
o Choose shelter which will provide an airspace if it collapses. If your furniture shelter moves, stay under it and follow it around the apartment.
o Watch for falling objects - plaster, bricks, light fixtures, pots and pans, etc.
o Stay away from tall shelves, china cabinets and other furniture, which might slide or topple over.
o Stay away from windows, sliding glass doors, and mirrors.
o Grab anything handy (blanket, pillow, tablecloth, newspapers, box, etc.) to shield your head and face from failing things and glass.
o Don't be alarmed if the fire alarm or sprinklers go off. Safety Procedures Besides making floods and destroying buildings, earthquakes that take place under the ocean can sometimes cause tsunamis, or tidal waves. Tsunamis are high walls of water which travel very quickly. They are known for destroying entire populations and cities near coastlines. It can also cause volcanoes. In 1896 Sanriku, Japan, with a population of 20,000, suffered a tsunami from the earthquake. Cool Facts The largest earthquake in the world was a magnitude 9.5 in Chile on May 22, 1960. The earliest reported earthquake was in California and was felt in 1769 by the exploring expedition of Gaspar de Portola while the group was camping. Side effects of earthquakes The best way to prepare for earthquakes, is to think through the different things that could take place. If a earthquake is large enough chances are, the electricity is going to go out. Telephone and cell service could also be down. That means not only means you won’t have light, but you also won’t have power for computers, televisions, and radios. Grocery and drug stores won’t be able to work purchases, ATMs won’t work, garage door openers might not work. Name any tool in this world and chances are it’s powered by electricity. So your first defense is making sure that you always have an different source of power, battery powered flashlights, extra cash, a supply of canned or frozen food that does not need to be cooked to be eaten, and the important supply of water (enough to last you and everyone in your family for three days.) Your home or neighborhood might be damaged. Broken glass and rocks will be everywhere. Rubber-soled shoes, a warm jacket and other emergency gear should be easily reachable from your bed or right inside your closet.
