Earthquake Drill Scheduled Next Week
HANNIBAL - May 16 through May 20, MoDOT and several other organizations throughout the country will be participating in an earthquake drill. The epicenter of the drill will be the New Madrid fault.
Residents who listen to public radio transmissions should not be alarmed during the earthquake drill. "We will run several bridge disaster scenarios and do not want the travelling public to think we are having an actual disaster. It's just an exercise," says MoDOT Maintenance and Traffic Engineer Mark Giessinger.
