The contents of your home may be damaged and can be dangerous:
- Shaking can make light fixtures fall, refrigerators and other large items move across the floor, and bookcases and television sets topple over. IDENTIFY: Look around your house for things that could fall or move.
- Ask yourself if your cupboard doors could fly open (allowing dishes to shatter on the floor).
- Is TV and stereo fastened down and are shelves fastened to wall? Do you have hanging plants that might fall? Is there a heavy picture or mirror on the wall over your bed?
WHAT CAN BE DONE: You can install door latches, braces and fasteners to fix most of these hazards yourself.
