Oregon Prepares for Earthquake Drill

EUGENE, Ore. — Drop, cover and hold–that’s what many Oregonians will be doing Thursday in a state-wide earthquake drill.

The Great ShakeOut on Oct. 18 won’t just be happening in Oregon, but all over the U.S.

At 10:18 a.m., participants will drop to the ground, get under a sturdy desk or table and hold on “until the shaking stops”.

Emergency officials say Oregon is at risk for a major earthquake because it is on a long earthquake fault line. They say it’s important to practice what do if an earthquake happens.
