These are lyrics from the 1971 hit song, I Feel the Earth Move, by singer songwriter Carole King. Don’t think she was referring to the same kind of “earth moving” that we can expect living in the Coachella Valley.
What can we expect?
What we can expect is a 7.8 magnitude earthquake starting in our Coachella Valley. Experts predict it is not IF but WHEN the “Big One” hits. Obviously, Mother Nature is in charge here. There’s nothing we can do to prevent - but there’s plenty we can do to PREPARE.
The Great ShakeOut Earthquake Drill
The HOA Board has approved our community’s participation in the 2018 Great ShakeOut Earthquake Drill. The drill will be held on October 18 at 10:18 am. This is a 90-second long training drill with a focus on what to do when you “Feel the Earth Move Under Your Feet.”
Drop, Cover and Hold On
DROP to the ground before the earthquake drops you.
Take COVER by getting under a sturdy desk or table and
HOLD ON to it until the shaking stops.
The best way to be prepared is to practice. Watch for daily updates and plan to participate in the 2018 Great ShakeOut Earthquake Drill on October 18 at 10:18 am.
