Today major rehearsals by disaster officials, the emergency services, and military, are continuing, in a bid to test how they will tackle with an overdue major earthquake that could strike anytime.

The massive earthquake and tsunami readiness drill, which started on Tuesday and is due to end today (Friday), has been developed by the US government, military, and state and local emergency managers over several years to test if they are ready for what is expected to be the country’s worst ever natural disaster when it comes.
