You do know what to do in the event of an earthquake, don't you? You don't? Well it might be a good idea to check out the resources on the web.
Beijing lies at the edge of a seismically active area; the Tangshan (several hundred km east of Beijing) earthquake in 1976 killed hundreds of thousands of people.
Three major fault lines cross Beijing, including the Babaoshan fault running from Dahuichang in the west of Beijing to Shunyi in the north-east. Beijing Airport is at Shunyi.
While earthquakes are rare in Beijing, there have been earthquakes here, and you should know the basics of what to do.
1. Duck 2. Cover and 3. Hold.
Get as low as possible to the ground, get under cover (of a solid table or bed), and hold on to it. If outside, stay away from near buildings and power cables where falling objects could hit you.
