Along with millions of others the CSUN Geology Department participated in The Great Southern California Shake Out on November 13th. A new large video display provided by Dr. Gerry Simila, and recently installed in the foyer of Live Oak Hall, ran the S.C.E.C. Realtime Scenario animation showing how a rupture of the San Andreas Fault would propagate if it began at the Salton Sea and moved northward across the L.A. basin and on to Santa Barbara and Bakersfield. On the second floor of Live Oak Hall (thatís Science One for you old timers, Science South for you really old timers) classes were interrupted at 10:00 a.m. by blaring speakers announcing the simulated earthquake drill. Students dropped, covered, and held on until the simulation was over. Classes then adjourned to the quad (see photo) where Dr. Doug Yule described to the students what to expect during a large earthquake and made suggestions of what they can do to prepare for one. A reporter from the Guardian newspaper covered some of the Shake Out events at CSUN and an article appeared the following day.
