Earthquake Safety Tips

Don't panic — the shaking usually lasts less than a minute, and most damage is caused by falling objects and resulting fires. So:

  • If you're indoors, stay away from glass. Take cover under a table or in a doorway so falling objects can't hurt you.

  • If you're outside, move away from buildings and electrical wires. Stand in the open until the shaking stops.

  • Don't use candles or any open flames. Earthquakes sometimes break natural gas lines which easily catch fire.

  • If you're in a car, move away from bridges or elevated highways that can collapse. Stop in an open area and wait until the shaking is over.

    Ebola

    by Ann O. Squire

Because the disease spreads easily and has no known cure, many people were terrified that it would spread throughout the world. Readers will learn how the outbreak began and how Ebola spreads from person to person. They will also explore earlier Ebola outbreaks and find out what scientists and doctors are doing to fight against the illness today.
