Thousands of students and government employees ducked, covered and held as they took part in a government-led national earthquake drill Thursday.

Cebu City joined Candon City in Ilocos Sur, Carmona in Cavite, Virac in Catanduanes, Southern Leyte, Zamboanga, Cagayan de Oro, Davao and Baguio cities in the earthquake drill.

The Nationwide Earthquake Drill comes less than a week before a metro-wide quake drill led by PHIVOLCS and the MMDA on July 30, at 10:30 a.m. –
