Why did everyone evacuate the buildings? I thought it's often safer to stay under a strong table or a doorway.
I think it is much safer to evacuate than to to stay in the building incase the building was to break apart you would not want to be inside. I saw where chimineys where falling apart and falling to the ground.
If you're standing out in the middle of a field, the only threat posed to you by an earthquake is that the ground might open up and swallow you alive, I suppose. Pretty common sense, dude.
