Severe Weather Awareness Week 21 Apr 14

Are you ready for severe weather?

This is Severe Weather Awareness week and officials say it’s a great time to make and practice your emergency plan and build an emergency kit.   

Two of the most important events during Severe Weather Awareness Week are the annual statewide tornado drills. 

These drills are scheduled for Thursday, April 24, 2014 at 1:45 p.m. and 6:55 p.m.  

Outdoor warning sirens and NOAA Weather Radios will sound in a simulated tornado warning.  The first drill is intended for institutions and businesses. The evening drill is intended for second shift workers and families.
