get a warning system - some animals do sense coming danger, watch their reaction.

not a shelter - but a specially constructed home, you won't have much time to run to a safe place. If not such designed home - run into open space far from the tall buildings

Get into an open space.... the rest are worries for before and after.

Hmmm, not one I really think about, but NZ is on a major faultline & we have earthquakes all the time, we have built to specifications to withstand them.. but at school we were taught to get under the desk or to stand in the doorway Civil Defense teach us to have supplies of drinking water, canned food, a radio, candles & matches, a torch, warm clothing etc. at the ready - I'm not sure if anyone actually does it though At the end of the day, when the big one comes, I don't think you can really plan too much for that...
