Just a reminder that statewide tornado drills are scheduled for Thursday, April 20.
A mock tornado watch will be issued at 1 p.m. followed by a statewide mock tornado warning at 1:45 p.m. Many radio and TV stations across the state will issue the test tornado warnings. In addition, 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 6:45 p.m. to give families and second shift workers a chance to practice their emergency plans.
The drills are part of Wisconsin’s Tornado & Severe Weather Awareness Week.
