Great Utah ShakeOut Earthquake Drill 2017

(THIS UPDATE IS ONLY A TEST. IT'S PART OF THE "GREAT UTAH SHAKEOUT" EARTHQUAKE DRILL.)
A MOCK 7.3 magnitude earthquake occurred at 10:15 a.m. this morning. The epicenter was in north Utah County. Classes could have been canceled and staff, faculty and students could be encouraged to leave the campus as quickly as possible. Those who are injured are still being attended to. If students are unable to stay in their apartments, there are a couple of shelters being set up on campus to accommodate them. The locations will be posted on this site shortly.
