Illinois university to present kiosk that raises awareness about earthquakes
An interactive kiosk designed to educate the public on earthquake safety will be unveiled Tuesday, Feb. 21 at the Southern Illinois Science Center at University Mall in Carbondale, Illinois, according to KFVS-TV.
The kiosk is the first of its kind for the Midwest and was developed by a team of earthquake experts, including Harvey Henson, assistant professor of curriculum and instruction at Southern Illinois University.
It features information about earthquake hazards that affect Illinois, such as quake safety and ways to protect homes and businesses from damage.
There will be an earthquake-themed presentation at 6 p.m. by SIU and other experts from the Illinois Emergency Management Agency and the Central U.S. Earthquake Consortium.
