Tornado Drill Set For Wednesday

Mar 4, 2014

A scheduled statewide tornado safety drill has been delayed for a day due to a winter storm that caused schools to close this week.

The drill is being held as part of Severe Weather Awareness Month and is set for 10:07 a.m. EST Wednesday.  Emergency officials say the National Weather Service, the Kentucky Weather Preparedness Committee and the Kentucky Broadcasters Association will send a tornado test message that will activate weather radios and broadcast media.  Tornado sirens will also sound.  Schools, businesses and residents are encouraged to participate in the statewide drill.
