"Great Guam Shakeout" quake drill set for Thursday

By Associated Press

HAGATNA, Guam (AP) The "Great Guam Shakeout" earthquake preparedness drill is set for Thursday in the U.S. territory.

Guam Homeland Security says island residents are urged to exercise their preparedness and drop, cover and hold at 10:21 a.m.

It says the purpose of the one-minute drill is to practice how to protect against an earthquake and how to take the necessary steps to ensure an earthquake disaster doesn't become a catastrophe.

Territorial departments and agencies, emergency response organizations, military partners and several of the island's public and private schools, businesses and individual families have already begun preparing for the next earthquake.

California's annual statewide earthquake drill, the "Great California ShakeOut," is also set for Thursday.
