The Great Central U.S. Shakeout Drill will take place Thursday (Oct. 18) at 10:18 a.m. local time. WKU will participate in the exercise through the activation of its emergency communications systems, including the RAVE text alert and outdoor warning speakers at 10:18 a.m. CT.
Earthquakes do occur in all regions of the state, and the WKU service region is no exception. The New Madrid Seismic Zone poses a significant risk and a major earthquake on the New Madrid or Wabash fault will affect all regions of the state. This is a good opportunity to practice your emergency plan. More information is available at http://www.earthquakecountry.org/sevensteps/
