  1. STACEY, what I would do if I was inside and the building begin to sway,
    without thinking, I would get the hell out while I can. Out in the open and as far from
    the building as you can, hopefully nothing will fall over you. You have a split second to plan
    or to say a prayer; believe me it's not a good feeling. That's why we should always pray first, be it
    on the road, at sea or in the office. It does't take much, one jolt and the building is a wreck.Take care.
