LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Earthquakes are rare in Nebraska, but emergency officials say it’s still a good idea to prepare for the possibility.

So the Nebraska Emergency Management Agency is encouraging people to participate in the Great Shakeout earthquake drill on Thursday.

NEMA assistant director Bryan Tuma says Nebraskans should take a minute during the day to practice dropping to the ground, seeking cover under a table and holding onto it.

More details about the drill and how to prepare for earthquakes is available online at www.shakeout.org .
