State Wide Tornado Drill is on for today. At 1:00pm, the National Weather Service will issue a statewide mock tornado watch and at 1:45pm a statewide mock tornado warning. Many radio and TV stations will participate in the drill. In addition, NOAA weather radios (also known as emergency weather radios) will issue alert messaging. This is an ideal opportunity for schools, businesses and families to practice safe procedures for severe weather.
This drill was originally scheduled for yesterday April 18th, but due to weather conditions statewide and many counties dealing with flooding and other weather emergencies, it was postponed and rescheduled for today.
