“Drop, Cover & Hold On” drill this morning

Grays Harbor will join the statewide “Drop, Cover & Hold On” Earthquake Drill this morning at 9:45am. Deputy Director of Emergency Management says that all citizens, schools, businesses and city and county governmental agencies are encouraged to participate.

Japanese authorities say that participation in earthquake and tsunami drills saved countless lives during the magnitude 9.0 Earthquake & Tsunami in March of last year.

In March of this year, Pacific County residents saw a 3.3 magnitude earthquake 15 miles outside of Raymond. Earthquakes occur daily along the entire West Coast of the United States. In Grays Harbor County, they happen along the fault lines which travel across the county, and along the Cascadia Subduction Zone, just a few miles off the coast and near the volcanic mountain ranges.
