Utah's largest earthquake drill

SALT LAKE CITY (ABC 4 News) - Wednesday Utah practiced what we would do if the ground started shaking. It's not a question of if, but when we have an earthquake. For the second year in a row Utah took part in the state's largest earthquake drill.
SALT LAKE CITY (ABC 4 News) - Wednesday Utah practiced what we would do if the ground started shaking. It's not a question of if, but when we have an earthquake. For the second year in a row Utah took part in the state's largest earthquake drill.

At 10:15 Wednesday morning we all practiced, what we would do if Utah started shaking.

Kids at Altara Elementary School got under their tables, lined up and evacuated giving them a taste of what it could be like.

Altara Principal Scott Jameson said, "We want them to remain calm and let their practice kick in and they will just know what to do."

That is the goal; be ready, when it does happen.

It wasn't just the kids practicing today, throughout the state at 10:15 everyone "dropped, covered and held on."
