When is severe weather awareness week and when will we have the state tornado drill?

Posted March 7, 2007

MIKE MOSS SAYS:      Linda,   Your timing is very good with this question, as Severe Weather Awareness Week for our state is about to begin on Sunday March 11th, and will run through Saturday March 17th. The Statewide Tornado Alert Drill will occur on Wednesday the 14th at 9:15 am, so long as there isn't any actual severe weather threat in the region at that time. For the drill, all NOAA Weather Radios will receive an alarm signal for the simulated tornado.
