Here are precautionary measures during volcanic eruptions:
1. Avoid all low-lying places because lava flows and mudflows are more likely to pass here.
2. Seek cover in case of ash falls rock falls.
3. Use masks and cover your mouth and nose to avoid breathing in ashes.
4. If you are inside a house; close all doors and windows to avoid ashes from getting inside.
5. Always stay indoors.
6. Stay in the evacuation center until further instructions. Do not attempt to leave the place unless told to do.
7. Keep a watchful eye on the kids because they might be tempted to go out and see what’s going on outside.
