MIDWEST CITY, Okla. - Oklahoma is no stranger to severe weather and natural disasters.

Thursday students nationwide took part in a "shakeout" drill, including those in the Sooner State.

Cleveland Bailey Elementary in the Mid-Del school district was one of 120 Oklahoma schools teaching our children how to react when the ground begins to shake.

We're told the kids received high marks in their earthquake readiness.

Nine states participated in the shakeout drill totaling nearly 2 million people.

Organizers said 60,000 of them were in Oklahoma.
