INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - People around Indiana and other states are using Tuesday to prepare for what to do if a big earthquake hit.

It's called the Great Central U.S. ShakeOut. The Indiana Department of Homeland Security is asking people to sign a pledge online and participate in the drill.

At 11:15 a.m., the drill asks people to "drop, cover and hold on" for five minutes.

In 2011, officials say about 3 million people in the region participated. The drill also includes Alabama, Arkansas, Kentucky, Illinois, Mississippi, Missouri and Tennessee.
