A statewide test tornado drill is planned on Wednesday morning as part of Nebraska Severe Weather Awareness Week.
The test drill is scheduled for 10 a.m. Wednesday, March 25, unless the weather is active that day. In case of actual inclement weather, the drill will be held on Thursday.
The purpose of the drill is to ensure that Nebraskans can adequately receive a tornado warning and to practice any actions which would be taken to protect their life in the event of a real tornado. The test warning 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.
