Immediate Injuries

During an earthquake, there are many ways by which one can get hurt (many times, fatally)

1.    People inside buildings could get hurt (even critically) by fall of objects/walls/ceilings

2.    People outside the buildings could get hurt by falling debris from damaged buildings, glasses etc.

3.    People traveling could get hurt by their vehicles falling off the tracks, bridges, material falling from overhead bridges etc.

4.    People could get electrocuted by snapped electrical wires

5.    People could get washed away by floods – caused due to tsunamis, breaches in dams etc.
