Earthquake safety

  1. 1. Earthquake safety
  2. 2. An Earthquake is a sudden, rapid shaking of the earth caused by the breaking and shifting of rocks beneath the earth surface. Over time, stresses build beneath the Earth’s surface. Occasionally, stress is released resulting in the sudden, and sometime disastrous shaking we call an earthquake. The shaking could last seconds or minutes, and there may be several earthquakes over a period ranging from hours to weeks called foreshocks and after shocks, the later decreasing in magnitude with time. What is Earthquake ?

  7. 7. In an Underground passageway The most fear something when you are in an underground is not the damage caused by Earthquake but the confusion by the panic. Even when power is down there in no need to rush to stair or exit

  11. 11. Aftershocks are smaller earthquakes that follow the main shock and can cause further damage to weakened buildings. After-shocks can occur in the first hours, days, weeks, or even months after the quake. Be aware that some earthquakes are actually foreshocks, and a larger earthquake might occur. What are after shocks
  12. 12.
