Stories From The Utah ShakeOut

Julianne Larsen

I had heard from VFX 94.5 fm that the shake out was going to be in half an hour so I kind of did prep quickly registering on the site. Then I set my phone alarm for the 10:15a.m. shake out. I did my morning the same as usual and kept the radio on. When my alarm went off I was on the couch so I dropped to the floor and protected my head. Because I had little prep time I was forced to really look at my emergency supplies. I need to get a grab n'go bag like on the beready You Tube video.
