Illinois Statewide Tornado Drill

Illinois Statewide Tornado Drill

Tuesday March 4, 2014 at 10 am*

All NWS Offices serving Illinois issue test tornado warnings. Test warnings will alert on NOAA All Hazards Radio and will be sent to the Emergency Alert System (EAS)**


* If severe weather threatens on the scheduled drill day, the test will be postponed to Thursday. 

** The FCC prohibits the use of live Emergency Alert System (EAS) warning codes for test messages.  A waiver has been requested from the FCC authorizing the use of real TOR EAS/NOAA Weather Radio codes for the test.  We thank the Illinois EAS Board for requesting the waiver for the test.
