What to do during an earthquake

What do you mean when you say that during an earthquake: "If there isn’t a table or desk near you, cover your face and head with your arms and crouch in an inside corner of the building?"

An 'inside corner' of a building would be any area inside a building and away from windows where two walls meet at a 90 degree angle. This area is considered a safe location to ride out an earthquake if you cannot take cover under a sturdy table or other piece of furniture.
