An earthquake?! What should you do?!

You might know that there are many earthquakes occur in Japan. Let’s see you are visiting Japan and experience an earthquake. Do you know what you should do? No? Well, I’ll tell you what. Actually schools and companies have a practice for an earthquake in this country. (You might know as “Shake Out”)

What you want to do first is to look for a place you can hide; for example, underneath of a table or a bed. This is for protecting yourself from things falling off.  It’s important that you don’t want to stay closer from shelves or something like that as things in shelves might fall off you. Once the earthquake is done and you feel it’s safe, you could get out. But you still want to be careful with things might fall off and/or other earthquakes.

However, the most important thing is this: do not be panic and stay calm!
