Tornado Preparedness

Tornado Preparation

A statewide tornado drill will take place on Wednesday, March 3, 2010, at 9:30 a.m. The National Weather Service will activate the Emergency Alert System and National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration Weather Alert Radios to signal this event. Everyone needs to practice their emergency preparedness plans in the event of a tornado warning.

Any time is a good time for businesses and schools to implement and practice their emergency plans. The following should be reviewed when learning about tornado preparation:

  • Do you know how to prepare for a tornado?
  • How will you know if a watch/warning has been issued?
  • What is a tornado warning?
  • What is a tornado watch?
