Earthquake in Melilla

January 21, 2016  Written by Gemma   Published in British Centre News, Did You Know....?

About an hour ago,There was a 5.1 magnitude earthquake.

What to do when there is an earthquake

If you are inside, stay inside. DO NOT run outside or to other rooms during shaking. In most situations, you will reduce your chance of injury from falling objects and even building collapse if you immediately: DROP down onto your hands and knees before the earthquake knocks you down
