Earthquake!! Drop!!

There are times when I don't like being a teacher especially during an earthquake. I was teaching a 3rd grade summer school class. We felt the rolling, then I yelled drop and the students quickly went under their desk. A number of students started to cry, while others thought it was fun. We evacuated quickly and school was dismissed. I found everything in my loft exactly where I left it with the exception of an open window that wasn't open when I went to work. Not sure what is better, teaching at school during an earthquake or being in my 100 year old concrete building.

My understanding is that all of the loft buildings have been retrofitted to meet earthquake codes (required by law). So don't worry too much about your building.

Hey. It could be worse. You could have been in a building in China - where they are not reinforced by metal. :o
