Mock Tornado Warning

posted Apr 20, 2017, 6:11 AM by Ryan Quinn
Schools, businesses, families and individuals have two opportunities to test their emergency plans during statewide tornado drills today.  

At 1pm today, a mock tornado watch will be issued, followed by a statewide mock tornado warning at 145pm.  

Besides being aired on local radio and TV, mock alerts will be issued on NOAA weather radios and many communities will sound their tornado sirens to test their emergency severe weather plans.  

Later, a mock tornado warning will be issued at 645pm to give families and second shift workers a chance to practice their emergency plans.
