Earthquake Safety: Doorways
Country: United States
Date: October 2006
Some people think doorways are the safest place
to be during an earthquake. Others say not. What or where is the
safest place to be during a very large quake?
Think doorways are mentioned as the lesser of poor options inside
building. Certainly the best place if there is adequate warning is
an open area clear of all buildings, power lines, etc.
