Earthquakes are a real possibility in Illinois, and the Illinois Emergency Management Agency wants you to remember that.  With two seismic zones in Illinois, the threat of an earthquake is real, according to IEMA spokesman Patti Thompson.

She says a small one was recorded a couple of weeks ago in Franklin County.

If an earthquake does occur, IEMA reminds you to “Drop, Cover and Hold On,” meaning you should drop to the floor, take cover under a sturdy desk or table, and hold on to the furniture until the shaking stops.
