Do’s and don’ts during an earthquake
The National Disaster Management Authority recently shared a video on how to stay safe at home during an earthquake. He told that keep peace during this time. Don’t be in a hurry to panic. Keep away from mirrors and windows. Cover your head with one hand. Sit under a table and hold it with the other hand. Do not leave the building when it is shaking. Come out of the house or building as soon as the earthquake stops.
