Statewide Tornado warning drill on Tuesday

Mar 20, 2018


This week is severe weather preparedness week, which means a statewide test of the tornado warning system on Tuesday.

Severe Weather Preparedness week activities are organized annually by the state branches of the National Weather Service.

Today’s tests of warning and communication systems will take place at 10:15 a.m. and will be broadcast on airwaves across the state including on WVPE.

In addition to the tornado warning test, the Weather service is encouraging residents to be aware of other weather dangers like severe thunderstorms, flooding and blizzards.
