By: Staff | Real Acapulco News - 08 December, 2010

(Acapulco, AN 8 December) The system of geologic faults that shakes buildings in Northern California also rattles foundations from time to time in Acapulco. In all seven regions of Guerrero State today, at 11:00 am, the Department of Public Safety will conduct “Seismic Drills” in schools and government offices, simulating a 7.7 degree quake on the Richter scale. Nearly 700,000 people will be involved. In all schools and public buildings of recent vintage, the seismic alarms will be tested. The drills will involve taking the correct evacuation routes and gathering at the designated meeting points.
