Earthquake in Korea: Safety Words!

There was an earthquake in Korea last night off the coast of Ulsan (slightly north of Busan)

(minor, no huge damage reported but there is a risk of mud slides!)

Here's the word for earthquake:

지진 - Ji-jin

Here are a few words to know if you're in an earthquake in Korea:

도와주세요! - Please help!


주의 - Caution


비상구 - Emergency Exit


기다려요 - Wait, stay

But really, if you're experiencing an earthquake, find something hard and stable to hide under. Running around trying to get out of a building can actually hurt you more as you might fall or be hit by falling objects. Try to wait out the shaking, then find a way out.

Have you ever felt an earthquake?

I'm from Southern California so I've been in quite a few :/

I been in at least 2 earthquakes...but The one ive been in 3 years ago was like 7.2 was really scary especially since I saw wires that were hanging sway from left to right so fast
yep, just heard from my friend who is in a city just outside of Busan... all of my friends are fine... nobody was hurt
I experienced a minor one during my trip to alaska. Btw I am also from cali too 😁
none of my friends who live there have said anything about it so it must not be too bad
had one in Massachusetts a couple years back
