Expect aftershocks hours, days, or weeks after the main quake. Aftershocks can cause building damage and falling debris that could injure you.
Avoid open flames in damaged buildings. Earthquakes can damage gas lines, so don’t use lighters or matches.
Drive carefully and plan alternative routes. Structural damage and traffic light outages may make it difficult to get to your destination.
