Earthquake tremors are felt from time to time. These are no great cause for alarm. However, in the event of a major earthquake, stay where you are until the shaking stops, then evacuate the building.
The patio doors on either side of the second floor lobby are not an exit except during daylight hours. They are locked at other times and have no crash bars. Be aware of the location of all exits. An emergence exit sign is posted behind the door of your room. Please note several exits closest to you.
