(UNDATED) - Hoosiers are encouraged to register now participate in this year's Great Central U.S. ShakeOut on October 16th.

The ShakeOut is the largest earthquake drill in the Central United States.

It is led by local emergency management agencies and the Department of Homeland Security.

A total of nearly 1.9 million participants have registered so far, and currently Indiana is in the lead with nearly 395,000 registrants.

At 10:16 a.m. on October 16th, participants should drop to the ground, take cover under a table or desk, and hold on to a table or desk as if a major earthquake were happening.

Practicing is the key to protecting yourself and others during an actual earthquake.
