RICHMOND, Va. — The Great SouthEast ShakeOut earthquake drill is scheduled for Thursday, October 16, at 10:16 a.m. Click here to register.

Virginia joined the multi-state earthquake drill in 2012, one year after a 5.8 earthquake, centered in Louisa County, shook much of the East Coast.

“We learned unexpectedly what the safe response to an earthquake is, and it’s not to run outside,” Jeff Stern, state coordinator of emergency management, said. “Since the Mineral earthquake, Virginia has participated every year in a multi-state earthquake drill so we all can practice and remember to drop, cover and hold on.”
