Tornado Drills Today

A tornado drill will take place today. Tornado sirens will sound today for two statewide mock tornado warnings. The first warning will be issued at 1:45pm and the second later in the evening at 6:45pm.
Since schools regularly participate during the day a second drill was added, said Jeff Last of the National Weather Service. “We added the evening one a couple years ago because we wanted families to practice together,” Last said.
