The Wabash Valley is at risk for a major earthquake, here’s how you can learn what to do


TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) – Indiana is exposed to a serious threat of earthquakes along two seismic zones.

That includes the Wabash Valley Seismic Zone which encompasses parts of southeastern Illinois and southwestern Indiana.

So, knowing what to do if there is an earthquake is important.

If you are unsure what to do, an opportunity to learn is the Great Shakeout.

This year, the drill takes place October 20th at 10:20 a.m.

Participants should drop to the ground, take cover under a table and act as if a major earthquake were happening.

This is also a great time to come up with an emergency plan.
