    I don’t have any thing that my husband could take drop, cover and hold on. We have only table glass tops that are too dangerous to get under.

    What would you suggest?

    “Drop, cover and hold on” doesn’t mean necessarily dropping beneath something. If you’re out in the open, drop to the ground, put your arms over your head and and stay down! Look at the image of people at 0:45.

    We will cover this in more detail in upcoming posts.
