My book has a paragraph giving advice on what we should do during an earthquake:
If you live in an earthquake zone, you should take some time to look around your house ... Check the mirrors in your bathroom and bedroom. Make sure they can't move. Don't put your bed next to a window.
Planning where you are going to be during an earthquake is very important... Then you should sit under a strong table or doorway, or stand in the corner of a room.
After reading the passage, my book requires me to complete the table. One row of the table has this:
- Check the mirrors
- Don't put your bed near a window
I don't understand the two bold words above:
- What are the differences between door and doorway? Why should we sit under a doorway during an earthquake?
- What does flying glass really mean? Does it mean glass can fly?
