INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Indiana is taking part in an eight-state earthquake drill designed to strengthen partnerships between local, state, and federal governments.
The name of the Central United States Earthquake Consortium's exercise is called CAPSTONE-14 and it began Monday and runs through Friday. The exercise took three years to coordinate.
An objective is to practice recovery efforts that would take place following an earthquake. The state of Indiana is focusing on addressing post-disaster housing issues and to facilitate delivery of resources to local governments for reconstruction.
The Indiana Department of Homeland Security is leading the state's portion of the exercise. The other states taking part are Alabama, Arkansas, Illinois, Kentucky, Mississippi, Missouri and Tennessee.
