Get ready to stop, drop, and cover!

The Great California Shakeout takes place today at 10:18 a.m. It’s a statewide earthquake drill aimed at educating people on how to survive and recover from a natural disaster.

Producer Angie hails from the Midwest and has no idea what to do when the big one hits, so Carson kindly shared a few of his earthquake preparedness tips this morning.

Firstly, if you wear contacts, always keep an extra pair of glasses on your nightstand. During an earthquake, lots of objects and hazards will be in your escape path, so you want to have clear vision to avoid them.

It’s also handy to keep a pair of shoes next to your bed. Slip them on after an earthquake hits and your feet will protected from broken glass and who knows what else.

Have a “go bag” packed in case of an emergency. It should include extra clothes, toiletries, a first aid kit, etc. in case you have to evacuate your home for a few days.

Always keep a case of bottled water on hand. If the quake is strong enough, we could be without water and power for days.

Listen to what else Carson had to say about earthquake preparedness below:
