How it works:
- Earthquakes: in an active seismic zone and tremors occur though without much impact. The last major earthquake struck in 1928.
- Wildfire: can occur during summer and early autumn (June to September).
- Flooding: prone to flooding after heavy rains.
- Avalanches: during winter in mountainous areas.
What to do:
- Travel at the “right” time to the “right” place
- Media reports, weather forecasts
- Global Disaster Alert and Coordination System
- Bulgaria’s National Institute of Meteorology and Hydrology
- Reacting to one:
- Earthquakes: drop (to hands and knees), cover (head and neck with arms), hold on (to sturdy furniture); expect aftershocks
- Forest fires: make yourself seen (e.g. spread out something large and bright), find shelter with little vegetation, stay low to avoid smoke
