    I'd try to run outside but if the house was falling down I'd get under a table or doorway.

    Depends on the size of it, if it was big I'd probably hide under my desk.

    Do what I did last time, stay really still. There isn't really anywhere in here to hide under lol we have one table and it's a rubbish little one so there'd be no point in going under it.

    Actually I might go into my bedroom and get under my bed covers. They're big and thick so might stop me from getting injured if the roof were to cave in... which is highly unlikely.

    Seeing what happened in the last 2 earthquakes that I have experienced, I probably wont even realize there's been one. Unless its really strong in which case the corner of my room is a good spot to be in.

    No seriously, you can't really do anything because you'll be in danger wherever you are.
