The Mississippi Emergency Management Agency (MEMA) says instances such as this makes us realize that damaging earthquakes can happen when we least expect them, sometimes they are barely felt but they can also be large enough to cause widespread damage, disruption, and even death.
MEMA says The Great Central U.S. ShakeOut, a national earthquake drill, will be held in October. The drill is a great opportunity for schools to practice what to do during earthquakes. The drill will be held on Thursday, October 17, 2019 at 10:17 a.m.
