 2. Retreat Calmly When Hearing the Earth Sound

  Mr. Liu was a farmer and he lived in a one-storey house before the earthquake. (X intensity)

  At about 3 o'clock in midnight on July 27, Mr. Liu and several others were looking after a patient. A loud noise came from the North and they were all scared. Suddenly, they heard someone cried "earthquake, run out!" Then, they all rushed out. At this time, the ground started to shake fiercely and they all fell down. Soon, the house collapsed. It was only a while of several seconds from the time when they heard the noise to the time when the house collapse.

  The reason why they could escape was that the earth sound occurred earlier than the earthquake.
