The Great Shakeout


ALAN BERNER / THE SEATTLE TIMES

It's duck-and-cover for fifth graders in Bente Fernandi's West Woodland Elementary School class during the national drill called the Great Shakeout Thursday. These students properly do the drill--no peeking. The students in the K-through-five school quietly evacuated the building and assembled in the playground.

More than 500 students at West Woodland Elementary evacuate the building by classroom to assemble on the playground behind the building during the national drill called the Great Shakeout, an earthquake-preparedness event.
