Kentucky's annual Tornado Drill will take place today between 10:00 and 10:15am EST (9:00 and 9:15am CST). A test tornado warning will be issued at that time.
The drill provides an excellent opportunity to evaluate and exercise your tornado preparedness. Do you know what to do if a Tornado Warning is issued for your location? Do you have a properly programmed battery-powered weather radio in good working order? When the test tornado warning is issued today, take a few moments to think about what you would do if it were a real warning. If possible, actually perform the steps you would take. What if you're at work? At home? In your car? At school?

As we are all too well aware, deadly tornadoes do happen in southern Indiana and central Kentucky. So, it is imperative that you have a plan in place BEFORE the storm strikes!
