Great Shakeout!

CHAMPAIGN -- Nearly 3 million people around the state took cover to practice for an emergency. It was part of the Great Central U.S. Shakeout.

Students at Stratton Elementary practiced what they would do if an earthquake hit. They were taught to drop, cover and hold on to something.

The biggest earthquake Central Illinois felt recently was based in Wabash County in 2008. It registered as a 5.4 on the Richter scale.
