Event Details

Beginning January 21, 2018 and continuing through April 15, the Evansville Convention & Visitor Bureau Center of History & Science will be the site for the earthquake preparedness exhibition SHAKE, RATTLE & ROLL. The exhibition will explore the history of earthquakes in our area, evaluate the potential for a major earthquake in southern Indiana and outline how you can prepare for a possible future disaster. The science exhibition will feature interactive displays which allow visitors an opportunity to experiment with the underlying features below our feet that lead to an earthquake.

SHAKE, RATTLE & ROLL will highlight tips that homeowners can take before an earthquake occurs to allow time to prepare. The exhibition will also zero in on areas of the home where improvements such as securing water heaters, appliances, cupboards and shelves may be done to prevent common earthquake damage. The exhibition will also provide details on what supplies experts agree everyone should have on hand in the event of any natural disaster.
