ST. LOUIS -- ShakeOut needs your help to make this the largest Missouri ShakeOut in history! The Great Central US ShakeOut is a nine state earthquake drill that teaches the principles of “Drop, Cover, and Hold On.” This year’s drill will occur at 10:15 a.m. on February 7. Missouri ShakeOut is now active on Facebook and Twitter making it easier to share information rapidly and effectively. Check out our pages for event information, milestones, updates, fun facts, pictures, and contests. Missouri ShakeOut also wants to hear from YOU! Feel free to share your personal stories about preparedness and ways that you are practicing earthquake safety.
