OMG! I remeber I've been through an earthquake this year. I was at school and the teacher was coming in when I felt the floor shaking. However it was really faint (or weak?..oh I don't know, to be honest xD) Then we went out from the classroom and we had been out all the day -.-" No comment. Everybody was terrified about it .

It's not very wise to get under something if the roof with bad stability, regardless if it's old or new, not a good idea. Get in-between a door enterence, it has a strong structure.
