Statewide tornado drill Tuesday

Posted Mar 02, 2021 12:35 PM

The National Weather Service will conduct a statewide Tornado Drill at 10 a.m. today. Everyone is encouraged to participate in the drill by practicing seeking secure, safe shelter from a tornado.

This test will be broadcast over NOAA All Hazards Weather Radio and many local television and radio stations. Local officials may also sound their warning sirens.

The National Weather Service encourages everyone to abide by health and safety guidelines related to COVID-19 during the tornado test. Those include staying at least 6 feet from other people when possible and wearing a mask.

If that's not possible, then simply sheltering in place or discussing where you'd go and what'd you'd do are other options.
