Posted at 2:05 PM, Oct 15, 2019

More than 10 million people in California have signed up to take part in the Great California ShakeOut earthquake drill happening this week.

The drill comes just days after earthquakes were reported near Salinas and in the Bay Area.

The ShakeOut is set for Thursday at 10:17 a.m. and while several local schools will be taking part, anyone can participate.

At that time, people are encouraged to drop, cover and hold for one minute, practicing what would be needed in the case of a real earthquake.
