Taylorsville http://kuer.org en Drop, Cover, and Hold On: Thousands Participate in Great Utah ShakeOut http://kuer.org/post/drop-cover-and-hold-thousands-participate-great-utah-shakeout <p>At 10:15 this morning tens of thousands of people participated in what is known as the great <a href="http://www.shakeout.org/utah/" target="_blank">Utah ShakeOut</a>: a statewide earthquake drill. Here on the University of Utah campus the drill started with a text message <message alert="" sound=""> from the University Campus Alert system directing us to drop, cover, and hold on. Not long after that another text message alert arrived directing us to evacuate the building and head to our designated assembly point in a nearby parking lot.</message></p> Wed, 17 Apr 2013 21:32:46 +0000 Brian Grimmett 27964 at http://kuer.org Drop, Cover, and Hold On: Thousands Participate in Great Utah ShakeOut
