Life-Saving '"Triangle of Life" Earthquake Safety Procedure
If you cannot safely escape soon enough to the outdoors when you are within a building that you may be in when an earthquake is about to strike,
Then: before the earthquake does damage, try to shelter yourself within where a sturdy "triangle" might result when roofs, and/or walls, and/or ceiling beams, etc., might fall crashing down on top of your location.
Therefore, conceivably, within that strong triangular-shaped region, you possibly might
not be crushed by the falling debris; you then being within that "Triangle of Life".
To quote Doug Copp, from "Doug Copp's blog", the inventor of the "Triangle of Life" survival technique procedure:
"The triangle of life is a space formed beside objects like sofas or other furniture when the roof falls on them. It is important that it is resists compression when the roof or wall falls on it. This safe space is called the 'triangle of life'. The larger the object, the heavier and stronger, it is the less it will compact. The less the object compacts under the weight, the greater the size of the empty space or hole beside it, and the greater the possibility that the person using that space will not be injured."

"Duck and cover" as a supposed earthquake survival method has been strongly criticized by rescue expert Doug Copp; with him referring to buildings during an earthquake whose floors collapse down on each other; which is what has been known as "pancaking" because after the collapsing is over with, the floors and ceilings end up stacked down upon each other, as if they were a stack of pancakes; crushing the material contents and living people who were previously living and alive on those floors of those buildings.
Children who attempted to "duck and cover" and to prospectively shelter themselves underneath school desks were crushed into just inches of dead biomass and thus killed by the collapsing building floors and ceilings.
If instead they had attempted to find a sturdy triangular space to resort to, to station themselves within, rather than to seek refuge underneath a flimsy school desk and rather than to attempt to shelter themselves in a doorway; if they had sought out instead, a sturdy triangular region to station themselves within, they might have survived.

Earthquake Warning Alarms
Here is where you can link to purchase Earthquake Warning Alarms that give off an alert signal just before the damaging part of an earthquake arrives; such a signal that might allow at least a short little time to quickly get to the outside of the building you and others are in; and/or to otherwise prepare for the earthquake; such as by following the "Triangle of Life" self-and-others rescue technique:

According to some sources, there has been predicted to occur a huge magnitude 9.0 to 9.2 earthquake, and its associated aftershocks, and their resulting plausibly 100 foot or higher, plausibly even many hundreds of feet high, tsunami groups of giant water waves repeatedly crashing and surging into and over the Pacific Northwest coastal regions cities and towns; wreaking havoc in multitudes of places with much threat to life; although with hopefully not any loss of life: none at all, would much better; and with potentially much destruction of essential life-rescuing, and life-sustaining infrastructure, search and rescue facilities and personnel, and other essential property and resources.

The July 9, 1958 Lituya Bay, Alaska rockslide-caused tsunami was possibly over 1,720 feet high; although it was only a local event, apparently.
