Once you have followed these instructions you are probably going to be OK.
Now that you survived the first wave, which is usually the biggest, there is commonly an aftershock. An aftershock is a small earthquake usually following a bigger earthquake.
Aftershocks are dangerous because people are still recovering from the bigger one and when you least expect it, it comes. When you think it is coming, follow the same instructions as if it was a big earthquake - go to a safe place and bring food, water, flashlight, and tent.
If you see someone hurt you should always call for help, if there is no one near by you should help them. If they are wounded, rest them on the ground and ask them if they have a cut. If they do, wash it with water and wrap their cut with any clothes or blanket. This will stop infections and will maybe save their life. This is the best way to treat someone by yourself.
I hope this taught you something about earthquakes.
