Earthquake in Japan: What tools and mindset do you need to survive?

MARCH 11, 2011
The most powerful earthquake to hit Japan since records began has struck the country's north-east and triggered a devastating tsunami that will affect oceanside communities in California and Oregon.

Japanese TV showed cars, ships and buildings swept away by a vast wall of water after the 8.9-magnitude quake.

As I watched the news this morning, some footage was shown of people in an office building during the quake. Most of them were standing around in disbelief, doing nothing. One worker remained at his desk, apparently attempting to continue working!

What should these people have done? Well, not being there, I can't really judge. But I believe I would have made an attempt to get out of that office.

What should you do in a similar situation? Click here for some suggestions!
