Reminder: The Great California ShakeOut takes place today at 10:18 a.m. and will include a test of the Humboldt ALERT Emergency Notification System, which will send out notices to those who have registered.
More than 10 million Californians are expected to participate in the drill by practicing the “Drop, Cover and Hold on” mantra of what to do in case of a major earthquake. Those in a tsunami zone are also asked to hold evacuation drills by moving to higher ground.
