Millions (around the World) to "duck and cover" during an Earthquake Drill today.
[link to www.wsoctv.com]

It worries me when governments across the World agree to have a huge earthquake drill in unison... Almost like they are expecting a huge, worldwide quake!

"More than 24 million people, including 9 ½ million in California, have signed up to duck under their desks at 10:17 a.m. local time Thursday, cover their heads and hold on to something sturdy.

The exercise allows first responders to dust off their emergency response plans and transportation departments to practice slowing down trains in the event of real shaking.

The Great ShakeOut was first held in California in 2008 and participation has since spread around the globe. This year, Japan, Canada, Italy and Guam planned to join the U.S. in the drill.

"Everyone everywhere should know how to protect themselves during an earthquake," lead organizer Mark Benthien said."

Today also marks the 24th anniversary of the Oct. 17, 1989, Loma Prieta earthquake. I was in California for this World Series Quake.... Quite life changing.

Certainly things are changing in this world very fast.
With new times also comes new discoveries and an increase in knowledge. [link to quakepredictor.net] is not showing anything concerning yet today. Not saying that won't change but so far today it has not had any warnings. If a big quake is coming there will be indications that will give us some advanced notice for those that are watchful.

This DRILL is separate than the one above... It begins a minute later, too.


"RALEIGH North Carolina will hold an earthquake drill Thursday morning, encouraging schools, businesses and residents to take a few minutes to rehearse what they would do if the earth starts shaking.

The drill will be easy to miss. That’s because there won’t be a test of the Emergency Alert System on TV and radio or any other alarms to announce it. Unlike a tornado, which meteorologists can often detect and track, earthquakes occur without warning, and so will the drill.

Called the “The Southeast ShakeOut,” the drill is scheduled for 10:18 a.m. and will involve residents in seven states, from Delaware to Georgia, and the District of Columbia.

What you should do in an earthquake is pretty simple: Drop to the ground, take cover under a sturdy desk or table, and hold on until the shaking stops. Stay away from bookshelves, lamps, TVs, cabinets and other objects that may fall. And don’t run outside, where the shifting ground and falling objects will make moving around dangerous."

You should be focusing on  Montana having theirs -the "Rocky Mountain ShakeOut" - on October 23, 2013 at 10:23

And take a good long look at the shape of Montana. Really look. What is that Freemason occult designed face and head looking down upon?

This is retarded. Why a mass drill? Simply educate people on what to do and there is no need for a "drill". That is what a simple test, pan flit, or training on the computer is for. It's not hard to inform someone that if there is a quake duck and cover. But instead they have to have a drill for the masses? This doesn't seem to make sense to me.

I saw this on their main site, under the Frequently Asked Questions section. Sort of made me laugh.


"Is an earthquake going to happen on October 17?

The ShakeOut is a DRILL planned, in most areas, for October 17, 2013 ... We are not predicting an earthquake to occur, though because many areas of the world are seismically active region it's not impossible."

100 years from now that is what will be taught about the duck and cover bullshit that was spread around the the 1950's, quakes rather than bombs.
