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.
