There's still time to sign up for the "Great Central U.S. Shakeout" coming up on February 7th. Illinois Emergency Management Spokesperson Patti Thompson says it seems unlikely for an earthquake to hit Illinois but the state is not exempt.
Thompson says the vibrations from an earthquake in the Central U.S could be felt for thousands of miles. Those who choose to participate in the shakedown event will receive information on how to take cover if an earthquake hits. To register, check out Shakeout.org/CentralUS.
