. Do NOT run outdoors during a tremor. More people are injured and/or killed from falling debris outside when they run into the streets. Best option is to stand in a doorway or get under a table. A significant fault line runs parallel to the Northeast Corridor.
I haven't seen anything else about this, where are you getting that?
