With springtime soon upon the region, it is never too early to start preparing for the severe weather season. As long as no severe weather is occurring or expected, the statewide tornado drill will be conducted by the National Weather Service today - Wednesday, March 27 between 10:00 and 11:00 am CDT.
The purpose of the drill is to ensure that Nebraskans can adequately receive a tornado watch and warning, and to practice any actions which would be taken to protect your life in the event of a real tornado. The test will be sent through all communication channels which are normally used for severe weather dissemination.
This tornado drill presents an excellent opportunity for everyone at work, school, or home to practice their safety measures, and we hope all will participate.
