Severe Weather Awareness Week is scheduled for March 25-29 as a precursor to the spring season’s risk for severe weather. This week provides an opportunity to increase awareness of, and response to, severe weather hazards. Specific topics which will be addressed during this week include flash floods, tornadoes, severe thunderstorms, weather warnings and family preparedness.

A statewide tornado drill will occur Wednesday, March 27 from at 10 a.m. A test will also be issued through the National Weather Service Facebook and Twitter pages. People are encouraged to practice any actions that would be taken in the event of a real tornado.

If severe weather occurs on the day of the drill, it will be moved to Thursday, Mar. 28.
