    If there were an earthquake, what is your opinion of being the best place to be caught in one, and why?

    besides a plane. a wide open space such as a field is the best bet, if there is nothing to fall and crush you chances are you will be safe.

    If it were to happen and I get stuck somewhere, I'd rather it be inside of a larger grocery store.

    Most everything you need would be there in a pinch.

    Think about it. There are flashlights, batteries, food, ice, first aid stuff, water, gloves, stuff to keep yourself clean, baby food and diapers, duct tape and other small general hardware. If it has a pharmacy, there's medicine. Even pet food.

    The problem is you don't get to choose, it will be a suprise so all you can do is react and find the best available protection.

    Well actually I asked what would be the best place to be if caught in one. And why. A lot of you are saying in the sky where it is safe but nothing about survival after the fact. If there were an earthquake, the landing choices might be less due to broken tarmac.

    Open field, or helicopter would be ideal.

    In my Tacoma. I have a bunch of stuff in it (First-aid kit, flashlight, 4wd) that would all help.

    I actually was driving around during an earthquake and did not even feel it. I got to my buddy's house and he was hiding in a doorway, completely freaked out.
