South Carolina Emergency Management and the LGOA are participating in the 2014 Shake Out on October 16th at 10:16am to practice how to protect ourselves during earthquakes, and to get prepared.
The Great Central U.S. ShakeOut is an eight-state drill spanning much of the central United States. http://www.shakeout.org/centralus/southcarolina/
Why: While South Carolina is usually not known for earthquakes, 10 to 30 earthquakes are recorded annually and 2 to 5 earthquakes are felt each year.
