The Great Southern California ShakeOut

On Thursday, November 13th, 2008, The Claremont Colleges will participate in "The Great Southern California ShakeOut." This is an earthquake simulation for Southern California cities to practice for the event of a 7.8 earthquake and its possible aftermath.

Everyone--staff, students, faculty, visitors--in the any of the libraries will participate in the event, including evacuation of the buildings following the "duck, cover, and hold" practice which will begin the event. So expect to hear alarm bells to signal that it's time to evacuate.

You may visit the official Great California ShakeOut web site to explore and discover additional information about the Southern California drill.
