Here is a good video on how to survive an earthquake. It's very simple, Drop, Cover and Hold. You can increase your chances of survival by following these three steps.
Make sure that you have the only earthquake emergency kit that actually helps protect your supplies from falling debris. Your kit can't drop, cover, and hold on, so it is important that it be crush resistant so that you have the best chance of actually having usable supplies once the shaking stops.
