Earthquake News

Californians are getting ready for the big one. Simulators were put to the test in a few towns.

An earthquake simulator was put up Tuesday at Union Station in downtown Los Angeles to allow individuals to test their preparedness for "the big one." The California Governor's Office of Emergency Services constructed the simulator as part of a trip across the state for Earthquake Preparedness Month. The simulator allows visitors to feel what it's like to be in an earthquake with a magnitude ranging from 3.0 to 7.0. The purpose is to provide people who have never experienced a major earthquake with the opportunity to do so in order to understand the need of being prepared.
