Great ShakeOut Drill at Biola University 2019

October the 17th at 10:17 a.m. it is
designated annually as the great shakeout this year it’s the 30th
anniversary of the Loma Prieta earthquake and for this year’s great
shakeout at Biola University in La Mirada. This event included an
unbelievable earthquake drill and a huge announcement for all of California Renna, do you know where you’re at? Not sure..The
ShakeOut is an opportunity for everyone to learn about what to do to protect
themselves during an earthquake: drop cover and hold on. Over a hundred
students faculty and local citizens volunteered to be actors in the
earthquake drill complete with very realistic-looking moulage, that’s makeup
applied to mirror what actual earthquake injuries would look like. It’s really
important because this could actually happen in California like we had some
earthquakes over the summer and like students like myself don’t always know
what to do. Drop, cover and hold on… we got you you’re safe… I didn’t experience the
earthquake before it may be like a very minor once but that one looks very
realistic I was like the moment I’m was in the basement I got feeling
the chills.. In addition to the earthquake exercise
today was also a chance to launch what is the first ever statewide earthquake
early warning system. It’s a brand new app available for free, the earthquake
early warning system that Cal OES has been working on with its partner
agencies is going live today and that means that people can download the my
shake app for me to the Google Play Store or the iPhone iTunes Store and
secure that app statewide. The new earthquake early warning app is now free
and available for download for any of your mobile devices just look for the MyShake app in your App Store you can also find more information by going to OS
