*Earthquake Drill

On Tuesday, November 3rd, Valle Catholic held an earthquake drill. All students and staff practiced the “Drop, Cover and Hold On” technique for 60 seconds:

·DROP to the ground

·Take COVER by getting under a sturdy desk or table, and

·HOLD ON to it until the shaking stops.

Small earthquakes and tremors occur frequently in Missouri, and a major earthquake could occur at any time. The New Madrid Seismic Zone, which includes parts of southeast Missouri, has produced some of the largest earthquakes ever in the continental U.S. Experts say knowing how to respond when an earthquake occurs is an important step to practice before the next major event occurs.
