With less than two weeks to go until the Great SouthEast ShakeOut set for Oct. 17 at 10:17 a.m., Virginia holds a substantial lead in southeastern states that are participating in the simultaneous earthquake drill. More than 1 million Virginians have signed up to practice “Drop, Cover, and Hold On,” the recommended response to an earthquake.

The drill is open to all. Individuals, families, businesses, organizations, schools and colleges, and government agencies can sign up to participate in the event.

The ShakeOut drill provides an opportunity to practice the safe response to an earthquake: Drop to the ground, before the shaking drops you; Take Cover under a sturdy table or desk if possible, protecting your head and neck; Hold On until the shaking stops
