Earthquake Drill In Washington D.C.

Mark your calendars for the Great Southeast Shake Out next week. For the first time, the Washington, D.C., metro region will participate in a mass earthquake drill. The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the Office of Personnel Management are asking all federal agencies to participate. They said the drill will last just 90 seconds. It's on Oct. 18, a week from today. A magnitude 5.8 earthquake rocked the D.C region in August 2011.

Why? Just an excuse to spend more money we don't have.
