With the recent devastating earthquake in Japan, Nepal has finally woken up to the danger that earthquakes pose to us here. A big earthquake is imminent in Nepal, and you should do as much as you can to prepare for the event and its aftermath. We spoke with a few experts in Kathmandu and came up with a few suggestions to help you avoid getting hurt when the earthquake strikes:
a) You can visit an astrologer and learn the exact date on when the earthquake will strike. You can go on a long vacation a day before the event and thus avoid the inconvenience
b) If you don’t trust astrologers, then you can run away anyway. The earthquake is going to strike anytime now, and you’ll find plenty of company in your flight out who are also leaving Nepal for good
c) You can carry a foldable table around with you and just put it over your head when the quake hits. Remember, earthquakes don’t kill – falling buildings do
d) You can camp outside and proclaim solemnly to whoever passes by: “The end is near!”
e) You buy an earthquake alarm so that when the big one hits, you get a warning a few seconds before the event. That way, you have time to be in a safe place
While we cannot help you with the other options, we have a one-time deal on earthquake alarms. The Quake Alarm is designed in the U.S. and depending upon the distance of the epicentre from your location, will ring to give a warning a few seconds before the earthquake actually strikes. Based on Kathmandu’s distance from the fault-line, this means that you will have 20-30 seconds to prepare before the grounds actually begins shaking. We heard that it worked very well during the recent 5.7 earthquake that hit Western Nepal.
From the manufacturer’s website:
The Quake Alarm is designed to provide instant warning of seismic activity by detecting the "P" wave (compression wave) of an earthquake, which travels faster than the more destructive "S" wave (shear wave). The Quake Alarm saves valuable seconds by removing the guesswork in earthquake detection. It is capable of detecting large earthquakes that occur hundreds of miles away and can detect moderate to minor earthquakes for many miles around your local area. One very important advantage of the Quake Alarm is that it can wake you up and alert you the moment the quake starts so that you can immediately take cover or tend to other family members.
