Utah will conduct “Great Shake Out” earthquake drill

SALT LAKE CITY -- Utah will be conducting a "Great Shake Out" drill for earthquake awareness in late April.

According to Unified Fire Authority, close to one million people will take part in a "What-if" scenario on April 20, 2017.

Officials say thousands of earthquakes happen every year in the United States.

Utah is a seismically active region, which is why residents should be aware of the dangers earthquakes pose, officials continued.
