More than 6600 people dropped, took cover and held on in Ashburton this morning as part of New Zealand's national earthquake drill.
Stay indoors till the shaking stops and you are sure it is safe to exit.
If you are outside, move away from buildings, trees, streetlights and power lines, then Drop, Cover and Hold. Stay there until the shaking stops.
If you are driving, pull over to a clear location, stop and stay there with your seatbelt fastened until the shaking stops. Once the shaking stops, proceed with caution and avoid bridges or ramps that might have been damaged.
