The Great ShakeOut: Prepare for Earthquakes
Did you know that there are seven faults in southern Nevada that could cause magnitude 6 or greater earthquakes to shake Las Vegas? Nevada is ranked third in the nation for risk of large magnitude seismic activity, behind California and Alaska. Join us in the Great ShakeOut, an earthquake preparedness event, on October 17, 2013 at 10:17 a.m. The Applied Geophysics Center will be holding an open house from 10 to Noon in SEB room 3261.
The Great ShakeOut lets us practice Drop! Cover! Hold On! At 10:17 a.m. on 10/17, drop to the ground or floor, get below a sturdy object (e.g., desk or table), and hold on to the object for 10-30 seconds, the duration of many earthquakes. After the event, look around you and see what could have fallen on you from above. The toppling of book-cases and heavy items or chemicals falling off tables or shelves are real hazards during an earthquake.
UNLV is an official participant in the international Great ShakeOut. For more information visit the Great Shakeout website.
This event is free and open to the public.
