Reviewing various YouTube videos from recent S. Calif. shake, it's pretty clear that adults did NOT "drop, cover, and hold". Is it possible that a) there are so many recent immigrants that they did not learn this in schools or b) we did not clearly explain that they should do this even if the shaking doesn't feel strong (because it could get much stronger...)... or c) have we just failed miserably so far at getting earthquake drills to instill immediate protective action in the event of the real thing??

This has just been added by Team Safe-T in response to the earthquake. I thought it should be shared here!
