Quake Mythbusting

New, 2 comments

The next time there's an earthquake, it's best to stay where you are, drop, cover, and hold on. San Francisco Magazine culled a bunch of earthquake-safety myths from the Internet and ran them by an official from the SF Department of Emergency Management. Modern construction standards make that thing about crouching in a doorframe pointless. Also, paper forts (??) are not worth the effort, and, no, cats can't predict seismic activity. Thanks, the Internet. [SF Mag]
