Statewide Tornado Drill Today

Share this post

Listen for tornado sirens in Lowell and other Indiana communities today. It's not because of approaching severe weather -- it's because today is the statewide tornado drill that's part of Severe Weather Preparedness Week in Indiana. 
The National Weather Service, in conjunction with Indiana State Police, Indiana Department of Homeland Security, Iindiana Department of Education, and the Indiana Broadcasters
Association, will conduct a statewide test of emergency communications systems Wednesday March 27 between 900 am and 930 am Central Daylight Time and again between 630 pm and 700 pm Central Daylight Time.
A test Tornado Warning will be issued for all Indiana counties, and will be disseminated like an actual warning and broadcast on NOAA weather radio transmitters serving Indiana
with same/eas codes and the tone alert.
Meteorologists say it's be a good time for Indiana residents to review severe weather procedures and participate in a tornado drill whether at home. at work or at school.
To hear our interviews with Jim Allsopp, Warning Coordination Meteorologist with the National Weather Service Chicago, and Valparaiso  University Meteorology Professor Dr. Bart Wolf on severe weather preparedness and safety, visit On Demand here at our website.
