ALEXANDRIA, Ky. - Millions of people around the world are expected to participate in the Shake Out -- an educational program to make sure we are all aware of what to do if a quake hits our community.
The 2013 "Great Central U.S. ShakeOut!" is a large drill scheduled to happen at 10:15.a.m. Thursday. About 2.8 million people are expected to participate in the drill in 2013. The Great Central drill includes Kentucky and Indiana in the region. More than 529,900 Kentucky residents are registered to participate and more than 560,500 residents of the Hoosier State are registered.
You are likely familiar with Stop, Drop and Roll in the event that you are on fire. But in the case of an earthquake the reminder is "drop" to the floor, "cover" by getting under a desk or table and "hold on" to that item so that you move with it during the quake.
If you are interested in participating in the official drill, you are encouraged to register at the Shake Out website at http://www.shakeout.org/centralus/ .
