At 10:17-am this Thursday, nearly 81,000 school children in thousands of classrooms across the state, will “Drop, Cover, and Hold On” during the Great Arizona Shakeout earthquake preparedness drill. They’ll be joined by thousands more in universities, state and federal offices, tribal communities, civic groups, and businesses. Each year hundreds of earthquakes occur in Arizona.  Most go unfelt, but the potential for rare, life-threatening, large magnitude earthquakes exists.  Faults in Arizona, surrounding states and Mexico are capable of damaging earthquakes up to magnitude 7.5 that could cause strong ground shaking across the state. During an earthquake the greatest immediate danger in most homes and buildings is from flying or falling items. Participating in ShakeOut is free and open to the public. You, your family, or school can take part in the Great Arizona Shakeout by enrolling online at www.shakeout.org/arizona/
