The Great Idaho ShakeOut

Wednesday, October 9 2013


The University of Idaho will be participating in the Great Idaho Shakeout, the statewide earthquake drill on Oct. 17 at 10:17 a.m. Everyone will be instructed to Drop, Cover and Hold On.
 
Although Latah County and the City of Moscow do not have a high probability for earthquakes, the state of Idaho ranks fifth highest in the nation for earthquake hazard. Only California, Nevada, Utah and Alaska have a greater overall hazard.
