Imagine it’s a windy day, but you’ve been indoors playing Fallout 4 for the past couple of days, completely unaware of the weather outside. Suddenly, a deafening noise shatters the windows, and you hear the structure around you collapsing. The roof caves in, and you find yourself trapped beneath a massive pile of steel, wood, and concrete. What should you do in this dire situation?
Earthquakes are unpredictable, and their effects can be severe. Unlike other natural disasters, there is no accurate way to predict when and where they will occur. Even if you don’t live in an area prone to earthquakes, you could still be affected.
Large, powerful earthquakes with the potential to kill and injure people and destroy or damage property occur periodically in many areas of the United States and the world.
