Great ShakeOut 2015 this Morning

The Great ShakeOut 2015 is today…and hundreds of thousands in Missouri will join millions of people worldwide to practice how to Drop, Cover, and Hold On at 10:15 this morning during Great ShakeOut Earthquake Drills. Over 500,000 participants, including schools, businesses, organizations, and individuals are registered throughout the state. Southeastern Missouri is located in the New Madrid Seismic Zone, which has produced some of the largest earthquakes in the continental United States.  Damage from a major quake would be extensive and would include the St. Louis area.  Officials say three actions give you the best chance of coming through an earthquake uninjured: Drop down to the ground, cover your head and neck and hold onto something until the shaking stops.
