I just want to share some precautionary measures to be taken during or after earthquake. Nowadays, we are experiencing earthquake in different parts of the world. Actually, earthquake is just shaking of the earth's surface caused by rapid movement of the Earth’s rocky outer layer. Let's first see the precautionary measures during earthquake.

1. During earthquake shake, come out from the rooms in open places away from the tall buildings and power cables.

2. If the time is less, come under stairs or near tables.

3. Do not use lifts during earthquake.

Precautionary Measures after Earthquake:

Switch off gas supplies, electric current and heavy water connections, if you expect leakage or risk of break up.
