All shook up

By Jennifer Barrera - Staff Reporter



When 10:19 a.m. comes along and the ground starts shaking, it wasn't planned this way.

That was only supposed to be a drill. The Great Shakeout earthquake drill has been scheduled to inform people what to do in case Mother Earth has a sudden urge to twerk.

If you see people running around outside trying to find a place to cover, do the same thing. Don't go inside the buildings.

If you are inside a building, get under a table and hold on. If you can't cover yourself with something, then drop to the floor and cover your head.

This drill is called the "Great Shakeout," everyone is to participate in preparation for an actual earthquake that could occur anywhere, any time.  

The drill will start at 10:19 a.m. and the drill will take about 60 seconds. Students are going to hear an alarm announcing the drill.

Also, students are going to get an alert pop up on their computer screens. They should start looking for place to cover themselves and hold on.

After the drill, students can get more information about the Great Shakeout visiting www.Shakeout.org.
