A regional earthquake preparedness drill – the Great Central U.S. Shakeout – will be held February 7 and Evansville-Wabash Valley Region residents are encouraged to take part and stop, take cover and hold on.
The Great Central U.S. Shakeout is a coordinated drill that will take place February 7 at 10:15 a.m. local time.
"You could be anywhere when an earthquake happens," said Regional CEO Amy Canterbury. "Households, businesses and schools should take this opportunity to create or update their emergency plans and to practice what to do in case of an earthquake."
