When the big one strikes, you'd want to be with these guys
After the big one there were many heroes. During the quake these staff in Sendai ensured everyone was safe first, the manager re-entering the store twice to ensure it was clear. When an earthquake strikes the usual wisdom is to stay inside the building you're in unless you think it's coming down. The March 2011 Tohoku quake went on for five minutes however this shows only the first two as the security cameras were destroyed. Partially collapsed, it took nearly four months to repair the damage. Stay safe.
