Fifth grader Tiffany Del Angel giggles as she squeezes under a table during an earthquake drill at Hilton Head Island Elementary School on Thursday. The drill was part of the 2012 Great Southeast ShakeOut. Sponsored by the Federal Emergency Management Agency, the ShakeOut was organized to encourage communities and schools to review and update emergency preparedness plans and supplies, and to secure shelter in order to prevent damage and injuries. At the appointed time, participants in the Southeastern states from Georgia to Maryland were asked to "Drop, Cover, and Hold On."
