The earthquake that happened tonight (Monday) in Turkey and Syria and was also felt in Israel, raised many concerns about the situation in Israel.

So what do you do if an earthquake breaks out?

The full guide is in front of you.

First of all, you can receive an earthquake warning in the home command application and the horns.

If you received a warning about an earthquake or alternatively you noticed signs of an earthquake, for example the animals are nervous or the bed started to shake, these are the instructions of the Home Front Command:

Citizens staying inside a building and can leave it in a few seconds - they must do so and move away to an open area.

Those who cannot, should enter the MMD and leave the door and windows open, or exit the stairwell and continue down until the exit of the building. Only if this is not possible, should one sit in an inner corner of the room or under a heavy piece of furniture and protect the head with the hands.


If you are not inside a building, you must stay in the open and stay away from buildings, trees, electrical cables and items that may fall and endanger you.

Those who are in the middle of a car ride should stop on the side of the road, and wait inside it until the earthquake stops.

Avoid stopping under a bridge or on an interchange.

Those staying near the beach should stay at least a kilometer away from the beach, for fear of a tsunami.

If it is not possible to leave the beach area, go up to the fourth floor or higher of a nearby building.
