MESSAGES 2014 :: FEBRUARY 25, 2014

Severe Weather Awareness Week March 2-8

Severe Weather Awareness Week is scheduled for March 2-8. The statewide tornado drill will take place on Wednesday, March 5, at 9:30 a.m. Most NOAA weather radios will NOT sound an audible alert to mark the beginning of the drill. As such, schools are encouraged to self-initiate their tornado drills at 9:30 a.m. as if an alert had been broadcast. The drill will conclude when participants complete their drill activities. No all-clear message will be issued. If this time is not convenient for your school's instructional program, principals may reschedule the tornado drill on another day close to March 5.
