How would you cope if a magnitude 7.8 earthquake struck? Highly unlikely in Ayrshire, but very real for people living on or near the San Andreas Fault... which is why, on 13th November, more than 5 million people in Southern California will be taking part in The Great Southern Californian Shakeout. Have a look at this video which shows what could happen when "the big one" strikes, and remember I said in class that this could happen ANY time now. Look at the ShakeOut website here and you can test your earthquake preparedness by playing the Beat the Quake game.
