Detailed Description

Damage to the KALAHIKIOLA Congregational Church in KAP‘A‘āU, Hawai‘i, caused by the 2006 Kīholo Bay earthquake and aftershocks clearly shows why taking cover inside a building (Drop! Cover! Hold on!) is safer than trying to run outside or stand in a doorway when the ground shakes. Collapse of the exterior wall would have severely injured (or worse) anyone trying to run through or stand in the doors of the church during the quakes. USGS photo.
