Drop, cover and hold at 10:18 a.m. Thursday

OLYMPIA -- Emergency planners in Washington are asking people to "drop, cover and hold" for about a minute at 10:18 Thursday morning for the 10-18 Great ShakeOut earthquake drill.
Individuals, schools, agencies and other groups have registered online to take part, and organizers expect more than 700,000 people will participate.
Climbing under a desk and holding on is good practice for a quake. The event is also an opportunity to learn about earthquake dangers and available resources.
