(BEDFORD) - Indiana's recent earthquake pales in comparison to China's devastating quake Monday. However, state officials are holding workshops to talk about how they can prepare for and respond to a large earthquake here.

The Indiana Department of Homeland Security is bringing together emergency crews for regional meetings. A meeting is planned in Bedford next week. (May 20-21st)

The extreme southwest part of the state is designated as Region 10. It extends from Evansville north and east to Martin County. Officials estimate that area of Indiana would be hit hardest by a New Madrid earthquake.

The Region 10 planning meeting was in Jasper last month. A meeting for the remainder of Indiana --areas north of Interstate 70--will be held in June.

The earthquake of April 18th rattled windows and awoke residents throughout Southern Indiana. It measured 5.2 magnitude at its epicenter, which was about 5 miles.
