    `keep away` vs `get away`

    Keep away, the floor is coming down/crumbling.

    Get away, the floor is coming down/crumbling.



    Hi,
    What's the natural way to ask people not to be near to a certain place, please?
    Should I say ''keep away'' if people are already away and I wanted them to maintain their position?
    Should I use ''get away'' if people are near and I wanted them to ''move away''?
    Thanks.
