There was a whole lot of shaking going on at a local elementary school Tuesday.

North Point Elementary took part in The Great Shake-Out.

It is a program aimed at teaching kids to drop, cover, and hold-on in the event of an earthquake.

Mike Seger of Penn-Harris-Madison School Corporation said, "It was a great event. We love participating in any safety and emergency preparedness processes. The Great American Shake-Out in central U.S. is kind of a unique event."

More than 400 schools in Indiana alone participated in the safety event making it the largest ever held in the Midwest.
